In third place was the advert for Glade Touch 'n' Fresh, which features a young boy telling his mother that he wants "to do a poo at Paul's", where the bathroom has been fitted with the air freshener gadget.

99.9% of adverts come under the most irratating for me, a lot of adverts make me want to grind my teeth into little stumps. Plus with advertisements starting as little as 3 to 4 minutes after programme starting it gets my goat.

I currently hate any advert to do with sunny, warm holidays abroad somad Sandals, First Choice, Thomas Cook, especially the ad with Jamie and Louise Redknapp claiming to be using a package holiday firm for their getaway!! Guess their next family holiday will be cheaper - won't be able to take Harry think

7 Churchill – the talking dog that can only say two words. Oh, no. 8 Webuyanycar.com – repetitive jingle that won't go away.

9. Nintendo – Ant & Dec interacting with their public.

The "poo at Pauls" ad should also win a bad dubbing award!

I hate the go compare ad, especially when the kids sing along with it! I also had the Autoglass ad on the radio with the brummy accent

Those sponsor ads on channel 5 before CSI, like the one for the Kia Soul. They not only come on at the beginning of every all-too-frequent ad break, but at the end too. That works out at approximately 10 viewings for every CSI programme. You learn to be quick with the mute button when you're a CSI fan though laugh
