  1. Greg Davies ( mock the week ) once said of Mz Balding that he loved a woman that looked like she could hold her own in a pub fight

  2. We have a less than six degrees connection with Clare's family since she was a child. We think she's great. What's with the "Jolly Lesbian" title? She's not defined by her sexuality. You of all people should know that. FFS. She's a brilliant accomplished TV sports presenter. And pretty nice with it.

    1. It is an affectionate title that's all
      I adore her ability to be professional, likeable and bloody talented

  5. Indeed, a true legend of BBC's incredible and sometimes correct sporting coverage. Jockey Liam Treadwell says, with a toothy grin, "I fang her for all her dedicated sporting work."

  9. I've been out rambling with her, many times. (Thanks to Radio 4). She's very good indeed.

  10. I second yours and all the above positive comments. If I was hetero I'd be wishing she was too. (What's that got to do with anything? Search me! Just thought I'd throw it into the mix.)

  11. I have no idea who she is, except what you wrote here. But what I know is that the world needs more people like her. Not lesbians, not TV presenters, but people who are good at what they do despite the useless bullshit that plagues everyone's lives.

  12. She's very good at her job and doesn't seem to have a single ounce of nastiness or arrogance in her, which is truly refreshing.

  13. If I were her, I'd be deeply offended...old indeed!

  15. She stole my BAFTA! The Olympic Opening Ceremony was up for a BAFTA, but we didn't win. Just because she was brilliant is no excuse....

  16. I agree. Good for her. Just a shame Miranda Hart came away empty handed yet again but good on Olivia Coleman - the queen of the show.
