I look older, uglier and fatter on TV

Coming out of GM-TV the other day, I walked past the tail end of the queue of people waiting to go into Loose Women. Sadly, they’d run out of space, and a few of the women at the end had been turned away.

As I passed, one started to talk to me. Her comment was simple, “you look much thinner and younger in person”, and “better looking”, and a friend pipped in. Now you may think this is good and indeed it’s quite a common comment; people often say similar things when they stop me.

Of course, they were being lovely, but, in truth though, doesn’t it mean I look older, fatter and uglier on the telly?
