As property guru and queen of all things craft, Kirstie Allsopp has graced our television screens for nearly two decades. Despite her penchant for dresses with ornate frills and delicate laces, some critics have criticised her for a sometimes overbearing manner and a habit of speaking her mind that means she is never far from controversy.

But, the 46-year-old presenter of Location, Location, Location has revealed how bosses at one production company issued her with an “edict” demanding she tone things down for today’s more right on audience.

The mother of two says she was told that some of her more challenging words and phrases could even be seen as bordering on sexual harassment.

In an interview with The Times she said bosses at a production company issued her with a proclamation that triggered a stark response about her thoughts on modern day politically correct attitudes.

Referring to the proclamation from executives at the unnamed company, she said: “It said that use of affectionate terms such as ‘darling’ constitute sexual harassment. I said, ‘This is ridiculous.’ It’s belittling an incredibly important document about disability language, sexist language, racist language. That’s what frustrates me about this whole debate.”

Cant stand the woman, OH had her in his cab once or twice and described her as a "snotty cow"...which I think is a good description.

However I agree with her 100% on this.
If society carries on this way England especially will turn into a Stepford country where no one will be able to think for themselves in regard to conversation.

Sell your soul to make a living
What you get ain't what you're giving
Money's got you in submission
It's a dirty world and we're dead on our feet.

Take your place and queue in the rat race
You're gonna die and be just another face
You wanna live but life won't let you
It's a dirty world and we're dead on our feet.

Never heard of her before now...

No doubt she's a 'legend in her own lunchtime', though..
