Default It`s Official ... James Blunt Is The 4th Most Irritating Thing In The World

JAMES BLUNT YOU'RE IRRITATING
Pop star James is 'more annoying than wardens'
By Victoria Bone

SINGER James Blunt has pipped traffic wardens and noisy neighbours in poll of pet hates.

The star - who rocketed to No 1 last year with You're Beautiful - came fourth in the list of 100 things that get up people's noses.

He was banned by radio station Essex FM last month following "listener pressure".

Ex-Army officer James, 32, defended his music at an awards ceremony in May, telling critics to simply switch off if they don't like his songs.

But the survey of 2,059 tetchy adults rates him as more irritating than stepping in dog poo. He also topped "celebrity" ex-Big Brother couple Chantelle and Preston, Craig David...and illusionist David Blane.

People's No1 hate is cold callers, followed by caravans and queue jumpers.

Ex-smokers are in ninth place with Carol Vorderman twelfth and Americans at No 46.

Men in flip-flops, people who read over your shoulder and dieters who moan that they are fat when they are really skinny also made the list.

The study reveals that women are easier to wind up than men, with more than 80 per cent admitting that little things can send them into a rage.

But Victor Meldrew-style blokes are also alive and kicking - as 33 per cent of men say the older they get the more crotchety they become.

The survey was commissioned by health drink firm Lactofree. Spokeswoman Louise Barton said: "It's the little things beyond our control which seem to annoy us the most - like novelty ring tones and noisy eaters."

Skipping CD's would be WAY up that list for me. And Ex smokers? do they mean Ex smokers who give out about smoking, or just smokers in general?

^ Yeah, I mean unlass they're parked in a really annoying place or something and those who inhabit them are the biggest wankers ever, then I don't see why they should rank above James Blunt...
