Dirty Secrets

Is it just me or does anyone else find Hilary Kay, the toy and mechanical antique expert from the Antiques Roadshow, rather fanciable? Especially as a more mature woman. I suspect she single-handedly is responsible for the show’s popularity amongst males of a certain age. My age. I think it is something to do with her accent – slightly posh – or her demeanor. She has a lovely smile. Lovely eyes. She has the confidence and aura of the sexy older teacher that you fancied when at school. Although, I admit that that may also be only me. Certainly, there has been a bit of an exchange in the blogosphere by Handsworth Grammar School Old Boys about whether Ms Jane Taylor, buxom biology teacher of in the 1980s, was, indeed, a babe or not.

On second thoughts, Hilary (Hilary, Hilary, you thrill me like electricity!), is perhaps not solely responsible for the programmes popularity. There is, of course, Fiona Bruce. The sexy newscaster who is now diversifying into mainstream TV.

Fiona is of a similar mold. She is clever, confident and easy on the eye. And then  there are those legs. What is there not to like?

Indeed, Fiona, bridges two of my favourite shows – from the Antiques Roadshow to Crimewatch UK. The latter, has had a long line of smart, sassy, sexy female presenters. They often distracted me from the “wall of shame” – the gallery of Britain’s most wanted. My most wanted gallery would have looked much different. Jill Dando (RIP and not to be confused with the equally distracting if possible more flexible, Suzanne Dando, the gymnast), and, now, the gorgeous Kirsty Young with her womanly curves and those dulcet Scottish tones. Sigh.

    Absolutely – Hilary is hot, and dirty! A very knowing smile.

      Dirty Secrets – you have succinctly summed up my opinion of the lady Hilary. I don’t feel so alone in my thoughts since reading the first para. S’funny how up to the age of forty-or-so I fancied young women, and since then only the more mature lady holds any interest for me.
