While Anita Rani is a regular presenter on BBC’s Countryfile, she featured on Best Toys of the 80s over the festive period and revealed there was on toy which she couldn’t stand as it made her “feel inadequate”. Anita, 43, explained why the doll was not one she wanted to play with as a young girl despite being incredibly popular with others.
Anita remarked: “I’m sorry to be the Barbie hater but she didn’t represent me in anyway.
“If anything, she highlighted all my failings.

“She just reckons herself doesn’t she, Barbie? She’s like, ‘Hey, I’m Barbie.’”Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
