    I hate that patronising iPhone ad 'if you haven't got an iPhone well - you haven't got an iPhone'

    Maybe I haven't got an iPhone cos I don't want one of the damn things

    The other one I hate is the one for Haribo I think. The obnoxious girl who bellows 'look into my eyes' at her dad

    Look into your eyes?? I'm going to skelp your backside and send you to your room for a month you brat!!!

    For me, it has to be the current Renault ad ....anything with subliminal Rihanna music has to be annoying. That and I'm not partial to their cars.

    It's those bits at the start and end of ad breaks that annoy me, telling me who the program is sponsored by. I don't care!

    I LOVE the creepy polar bear! LOL - But maybe just because I can't quit believe that Willem Dafoe does the voice. :D

    I hate the 'Wonga' ads. And the bingo ads. All of them.

    Go compare adverts are the worst adverts EVER! Makes me want to break my tv! lol!

    The moneysupermarket ones annoy me too, and the confused.com ones.

    Wonga....bunch of muppets!

    And the Venus adverts, Those women clearly wax.

    And... (god you've got me started) the sanitry towel adverts... blue liquid? Really?

    And the one on here telling me that I should go for weight loss surgery because I've failed at a diet is a disgrace and should be banned.

    All excellent suggestions peeps :)

    I love the polar bear and meerkats too - a woman down the road has a windowbox with three meerkat statues in amongst the marigolds - and has gold and black letterbox stickers spelling out S-I-M-P-L-E-S :)

    I hate any toilet roll advert that shows a child on the toilet having a number 2..... they wouldn't show an adult on primetime tv having a poo, so why a child? It's just as revolting
