Im not sure Fern Britton was ever pretty. Anyway excess body weight is never attractive. Why do you think we are programmed to seek out non fat people (unless we are fat ourselves, so therefore have to seek someone in the same league as us). Blame nature if you want to blame anyone for humans seeing Fattie McVities as not as attractive as slim people.

Are you talking about societal programming or evolutionary programming here?
Evolutionarily speaking - its actually supposed to be the more rotund of people who would survive better as they hold on to fat more meaning theyre able to survive between meals longer. Of course in the western world most folk (given this is a running forum - it probably doesnt apply so much here) dont do enough exercise and thus can get pretty big. Which is sort of why in some places in the third world fat is seen as attractive - as a sign of wealth.
EDIT: looks like someone else said it before i clicked post :P
only in western culture, lots of cultures go for larger women, and the more secluded the more likely too, what is attractive is dictated by fashion and popular culture, paradigms of beauty change over the years.
The attraction to larger breasts is most likely an evolutionary/pre programmed attaraction to a "healthy" (as in not starving) child bearing woman.same reason women are generally more attracted to stronger fitter men, but of course we are more persueded by fashions and culture these days so less likely to follow our instincts, especially as we no longer require our partners to go hunting/breastfeed/defend the tribe....etc etc,
sorry.. carry on, sooo running...
Rumour has it Helen Mirren has had a bit of tweaking too!
my car didnt come with alloy wheels when i got it either, looks better with the though, tweek away helen.
The point is that they wouldn't look that good naturally and you guys wouldn't be drooling over them.

I wasn't drooling over anyone..... I just said Toyah still looks good ..... A person can look without drooling
Yes and I'm pointing out that she only looks as good as she does because she's had plastic surgery.
Personally the cosmetic surgery rarely looks good - you can usually tell its been done.
You cant buy dignity.
You're right JMopper:
I had a meal once in a very posh restaurant.
I remember nothing at all about it except the stretched, bloated and botoxed seventy-odd year old sitting opposite who looked like her face was about to split open at any moment.
But enough of your date, what was the food like ?
I don't bat for that side Dave
The food obviously wasn't that good. But even if it had been I think she would have put me off it :-S
HD TV will hopefully play a part in the revealing how poor of a job cosmetic surgery generally does.
Botoxed actresses confuse me the most - you are an actresss - why would you not want to be able to move parts of your face, isn't that how you earn your living?
