A teenage crush crushed.

Saturday, February 04, 2012

I used to have a bit of a (huge) crush on Chris Packham. This was back in his Really Wild Show days, when he used to bleach his hair. Even seeing him recently on Autumn Watch I thought 'Yeah, he's still got a certain something'. And then I watched him on Room 101 last night.

Crush over.

Firstly, he wanted to banish Chris Moyles. Okay, listen up Packham, if you don't like his (hugely popular) breakfast show, don't listen.

Next up, homosapiens. Why? Because we have ruined the earth. The earth was, according to Chris, ticking along nicely in harmony and along we came, inventing technology and medicine and messed the whole thing up. I bet he takes a paracetamol when he has a headache.

Lastly, children's art. It seems the pictures drawn by people's children displayed in their own homes irritate Mr Packham. He admitted to being at a friend's house (proving he has at least one) and removing a picture from the fridge, tearing it up and putting it in the bin. WTF? I bet know one calls him 'Uncle Chris'.

He may be a nature loving man, passionate about our environment but he also seems to be a bit of a tit. For the first time in my life, if I was given the choice between snogging him or Terry Nutkin, it would be be Terry I tell to pucker up.

The whole thing reminds me of a poem by Wendy Cope

Two Cure For Love
1. Don't see him. Don't phone or write a letter.
2. The easy way: get to know him better

  1. I love Moyles and I don't like to hear of him being slated! Mr Packham does indeed sound like a royal tit. Glad you've moved on ;)

  2. Haa, this made me chuckle. Glad you're moving on.. x

  3. Lol he sounds like a total arse!

  4. Hahaha, I thought the same thing when I watched it last night! I just stumbled across your blog and wanted to let you know I love it! I've literally lost the past 30 minutes reading through your posts... You have a new follower :D

  5. I can't believe I've found someone else who fancied Chris Packham when he was on The Really Wild Show!!! I thought I was the only one!

    (Imagine how crushed I was - my biggest crush ever was Ryan Giggs. I'll say no more.)

  6. I also have to admit to a large crush on Chris Packham - as I read above I wasn't too bothered about Chris Moyles but the rest made me agree totally with you!

    Another childhood dream ruined by reality.

  7. Oh ok, he just sounds irritating! It's so rubbish when childhood crushes/idols turn out to be awful in real life!

  8. Those were really bad choices (especially the children's art one!), but he was on Buzzcocks recently and I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't grow up in the UK, so all i know of him are those barrier reef programmes on just now which I can't get my head round. Nature programmes narrated by anyone other than David Attenborough are just wrong. But I thought out of the people on that room 101 Chris Tarrant was by far the worst. He is quite icky. I don't really like the new format of room 101, they don't get enough time to explain anything. And it's odd that it's a competition now. I mean, I can think of lots of annoying things people will agree with, but they aren't the things I personally find the most annoying.
