I quite like Fiona Phillips actually *shock, horror* she tells it like it is and her mess ups are funny aswell. Also its rare for there to be a camerardory with Eamonn Holmes - i think she's the only that has ever achieved this, Lorrainne didn't get on with him nor did Anthea and it's never the same when Penny and that lisping woman is on with him they never get on aswell as when it's Fiona and Eamonn....

You're right on that point, they do seem like brother and sister sometimes. But she is annoying and patronising, and comes across as self-important IMO (as in my hubby's boss!).

And by the way, it's camaraderie Wink

Why not get rid of all the GMTV presenters and start from scratch with a new show and new presenters . I think a new competition we could line them up in a row in front of the thames on the south bank and select say six lucky viewers to push them Anthea could return and push Eamonn in.

Well, if you are looking for an uneducated airhead who can't read autocue to save her life and whos most famous appearance on TV was in an advert for Boddingtons- then there you have the answer.

Edit: Sarah Heaney would be ideal to compliment Fiona... and what about Shereen Nanjiani? She'd be a good choice as well!

I think Fiona is fab, her occasional crassnes and general dizzy demeanour are all part of her charm for me, at least she's not stiff and starchy.

No i for one would not miss Fiona i think they should also get rid of Penny too i'm fed up of her stupid comments at the end of the news .


Now wait a second, don't you be criticising Penny, you've taken it *too far* -- she carries GMTV she does. And she seems to be in nearly every day of the year, and did some other good programmes in the past. Fiona isn't one of my favourites but I think the programme would miss her.

And Penny's jokes and comments are hilarious -- even if no-one else in the studio is nice enough to laugh at them, I do.

I couldn't agree more - Fiona seems so 'real' to me. And she has shown that women with itchy bottoms can still get a job presenting on breakfast TV Wink

Bill & Sian should move to GMTV, taking most of Breakfast's viewers with them I expect!
