Default Who can't you stand on your TV?

Are there people who you absolutely refuse to watch on TV or in films because they irritate you so much?

I can't abide Richard E Grant, Nicholas Cage or Cilla Black for starters.

It's not necessarily poor acting or being bad at their jobs, but just something about them that annoys me.

Mr Meow refuses to allow Joanna Lumley on our TV.

I wouldn't think you can stand many people on your TV, especially new LCD/LED ones. I will go for Tom Cruise, Warwick Davis and Bridgit the Midget.

Nicky Campbell - Probably completely irrational but i just cannot abide him. I think he was a radio DJ on my local station when I was a child and something about his voice makes me shudder.

I can't stand anyone on my TV - it's too narrow and they'd just fall off.

Michio Kaku.

Don't get me wrong, there are things he's in where I enjoy watching him. But then there are shows like Sci Fi Science: Physics of the Impossible, which just make me cringe and want to punch him.

Also, Richard Quest. Oozzes prick.

I can't stand Richard Quest and his horrible voice, not to mention his repulsive teeth. How on earth did he ever get on TV?

Miss Anne Thrope is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: Who can't you stand on your TV?

Oh this thread will run and run...
Noel Edmonds
Ainsley Twatchef
Iain Hislop
That posh one who used to be the royal correspondent and now is on something with antiques
The twathead on the other stupid junk antiques show (lot of BBC Lifestyle I guess)
Trevor Francis
Bloody bloody Alan bloody Shearer
Frank Stapleton (I can't believe I would ever write that but he is a horrible pundit though not as awful as David O'Leary who is fortunately never on now, maybe only ever was on RTE anyway I suppose)
Butch Wilkins
Actually pretty much most ex-footballers acting as pundits
Did I mention Trevor Francis?
Kate Adie

There that's enough of an eruption for the moment. I'm afraid I'll be back with lots more.
