Indeed. She seems like a genuinely nice person, charming and bubbly and all
that, but she has the media presence of a wet lettuce.

In fact, her interviews are so cringeworth that when I used to see her
occasionally down the local shops[1] near my previous house, I was sorely
tempted to try and mount the footpath[2] in my car to take her out, merely
to spare the world another godawful "umm, yeah" interview.

But then I realised she could probably outrun my car anyway.
