This is a question Driven to Madness

Captain Placid asks: What annoying things do significant others, workmates and other people in general do that drive you up the wall? Do you want to kill your other half over their obsessive fridge magnet collection? Driven to distraction over your manager's continued use of Comic Sans (The Font of Champions)? Tell us.

tv presenters who don't deserve their jobs!
Apologies for sounding like a grump, I'm normally very laid back but this makes my blood boil.

Now many of us would quite fancy being tv presenters, something serious like grilling political leaders, or something lighthearted like chatting with minor celebs and getting paid and styled for it. Now obviously this has got to be a coveted role that only goes to the very best? Then someone please explain these things...

1. Richard Hammond presenting Total Wipeout. People falling over and getting injured can always be funny, it doesn't take much comedic talent to make it funny and yet he still manages to make it painful with his truly awful attempts at jokes. Why is there not a nationwide campaign to pressure the beeb to stop wasting money on him. Even if they were paying him minimum wage it would be far too much for his level of talent.

2. T4 presenters. Who at channel 4 decided that young people like/admire hipsters? For many students t4 is hangover tv and the last thing we need is to endure someone resembling the stuck up twat from our monday seminar making rubbish jokes. And now they're on e4 as well as channel 4?! Madness! Just put on the simpsons and let me eat some reheated takeaway in peace. And while you're at it stop showing supernanny - how does that gel with the e4 target audience?

Feel free to add more if there are any presenters you think are useless (obvious ones could include Kate garraway, adrian chiles, james corden, etc.)

Perhaps you should try spending some time not watching crap television channels?

The "off" button can come in pretty handy from time to time.

In fairness to Richard Hammond
I doubt that he write the turgid script to that dreadful program, of which I have only ever seen an accidental few moments.

Ooh, loads. Three immediately spring to mind...
Aled Jones - go back to the god slot, runt.
Dr Lucy Worsley - FFS woman, you're nearly 40. Stop with the faux-cute rhotacism and the hair ribbons and the coquettish pieces to camera. In fact, go back to brown-nosing royalty.
Paddy McGuinness - not just a career, but a whole lifetime built on not being as funny as Peter Kay. Time's time, cock.
