  1. I think she’s brilliant; the olympic coverage wouldn’t have been the same without her.

  2. Adore Clare Balding, if the BBC doesnt hang on to her they are mad- although she will bring some MUCH needed class to C4 racing coverage.

  3. Clare Balding really is a national treasure. She is genuinely humble and interested in what she presents – unlike others who I feel are there just to make a quick quid. I’m so glad she got to shine during the (para)olympics.

    She’s a treasure of the UK and the LGBT community!! We love you, Clare!

  4. Clare-you’re just great!!!

    I do admire Claire Balding, but find her assertion that she didn’t realise she was Gay until her 20s,.. Meh! They all adore her until she asks for Equality with the rest of British society. “We “love” you Claire, but don’t dare ask to Marry your beloved Alice, we can’t be having that sort of thing”.

    1. Her name is spelt “CLARE” you Irish troll

  6. Just love Clare.So professional and well researched in every sport she covers.Wouldbe my number one choice for a dinner party guest.
    Will settle for a tweet for now.

  7. Love Clare Balding. Saw her at crufts too. Such a professional at everything she does.

    Why is Pink News writing about this? It this ‘news’. She is a successful broadcaster who just happens to be a lesbian, with prominent slots on both the BBC and C4 in the recent Olympics and Paralympics. No doubt other broadcasting work is coming her way, as it well should.

    I like her style a lot, but just what is the purpose of this article?

    1. she has a book to sell,

    2. It is good to see successful LGBT people, especially those that took a bit longer to realise who they were. It is inspirational and hopefully goes some way to helping others who are in the early stages of self-discovery know that they are not alone and that they can be who they are and be successful as well.
