But bloody attractive. I think that's why she's used.

To get people talking about her, so job done given the vast number of threads constantly devoted to her.

She's the Daily Mail of the presenting profession. Say something provocative and watch the clicks roll in, and who cares if they're to slate or praise you because all publicity and all that.

That's one of those unanswerable existential questions we all ponder from time to time.

Pretentious...moi?

She exists only to wind people up.

Awful insensitive 'journalist'.

Yau! Another anti Kay Burley thread, we are rather short of those at the moment.

BTW I agree with dans_t16s , I find her rather attractive too.

I think she's good looking. And not half as demonic as she's made out to be, every time I read discussions about her online and people post all the examples of how "awful" she is, I'm left thinking "eh, wasn't that bad" for most of them.

YouTube is awash with Kay Bully's many, many acts of faux pas, for anyone who cares to look.

Yes, only mildly offensive - It`s what every good journalist aspires to......

Asian transsexuals everywhere with a good command of the English language, a rude off-hand manner, a monotone delivery and a passing knowledge of world affairs must look at her and think, "That could be me!"

She's like the story she is currently covering from Malaysia, so unexplainable & baffling that it sends people mad.

See I find it more surprising that more hasn't been made of some of her clangers over the years. Because God knows she's had more than her fair share and some real jawdroppers at that!!

Sky News has declined a lot in recent years. The fact that Kay Burley is their leading lady when there are so many stronger candidates speaks volumes really. It's not a serious player in news, just a dumbed down ratings chaser. And not even very good at that.

The point of Kay Burley is a morale booster for us all. Because no matter how rubbish your day has gone, you can sit back in your favourite armchair with a brew and think to yourself "well, at least Kay Burley didn't show up and interview me" and feel pleased that you didn't have such a bad day afterall.

Never been (even "mildly") offended by her.

Damning with faint praise.

Don't get the fuss, she's just another person you may or may not like on TV...

With virtually all news reporters you could find some angle to dig at them.

Never watched Kay since she left TVAM but I watched her on SN yesterday morning. She's reasonably attractive for a woman in her 50s except for one thing. Wtf is goin on with those teeth? I'm not an American type, gleaming white tooth obsessive but these gnashers are a disaster area.

I couldn't give a 4X what she looks like, it's her disposition that's as ugly as sin.

Well it wasn't exactly meant to be a full appraisal of her career so far, just that I never find the hysteria over the latest thing she has said or done to be at all justified.

Really? Paula Middlehurst, Lorna Dunkley or Sara Jane Mee are miles fitter.

She's Sky's version of Victoria Derbyshire, that bad

I believe that because of her insensitive nature and bizarre, cringeworthy behaviour, especially around the last royal baby, she's been called Alana Partridge.
