Simon Rimmer, 57, who is known for his TV partnership with host Tim Lovejoy on Sunday Brunch, has been branded “cheesy” by viewers after the pair took part in a Lavazza coffee advert. The clip, which aired on Channel 4 this week, shows the colleagues enjoying a coffee, and while adverts often go unnoticed by viewers, some have called this one the “worst they have ever seen”.

Cringeworthy as hell!

A fan

Viewers took to Twitter to express their opinions after seeing the advert for the first time.

One wrote: “That Lavazza advert on Sunday Brunch is probably one of the worst things I’ve ever seen.”

Another replied: “Oh god that Lavazza Qualità Rossa coffee advert with the Sunday Brunch lads is cringeworthy as all hell!”

A third typed: “The coffee advert with Tim and Simon in between Sunday Brunch is possibly the most awful thing I’ve ever seen.

While one fan went as far as saying that the advert had put them off coffee altogether.

They typed: “That Sunday Brunch Lavazza advert was SO awful that I’m considering giving up coffee altogether. “

However, others disagreed, with one saying: “Really enjoying Sunday Brunch this morning @simonrimmer always makes me smile!!”

Another responded: “I quite like the coffee advert tbh.”(sic)

Elsewhere, Simon recently paid tribute to England footballer Ray Clemence, who died aged 72, last weekend.

Simon typed on Instagram: “So sad to hear that Ray Clemence has died. 

“He was the first footballer I ever met when I was 10. 

“He was a gent then as he was last year at Anfield. RIP No 1, “ he added.

Ray died peacefully in his sleep according to Tottenham Hotspur F.C. after a “long battle with illness”.

He was surrounded by his family and loved ones at the time of his death.

A statement from the family read: “After fighting so hard, for such a long time, he’s now at peace and in no more pain.

“The family would like to say a huge thank you for all the love and support that he’s received over the years.”

Simon is a lifelong Liverpool FC fan and is also passionate about cooking fine cuisine.

On his weekly programme Sunday Brunch with Tim, he teaches viewers how to make delicious dishes at home.

During the previous lockdown, he had filmed from his Manchester home, but now he has returned to the Channel 4 studios for the foreseeable future.

Sunday Brunch airs today at 9.30 am on Channel 4
