But there was one person who really stood out as far as viewers were concerned… 

Swedish matriarch Toren of the Marks family impressed with her no-nonsense approach, but also her warmth and glamour.

Some people thought she was better than the presenters…

Some people thought she was the best person on TV

Some people said she was the Queen…

Some wanted Toren to be their grandma (whatever it took)…
