One of Portsmouth’s best-known celebrities has been named one of the most annoying TV hosts by a poll.

Amanda Holden is best known for being a judge on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent and a former star in Wild at Heart. Despite these achievements, one section of television viewers don’t seem to care for her.

In a poll by Bestcasinos, which quizzed 2500 Brits, Amanda was described as the most annoying by 51 per cent of respondents. Magician and comedian Stephen Mulhern ranked in second with 32 per cent of the votes, followed by Claudia Winkelman with 17 per cent.

The poll also asked who was the most loved and funniest TV presenter. Alison Hammond got 70 per cent of the vote.

Amanda, 52, who was born in the city and grew up in Waltham Chase, has recently teamed up with comedian Alan Carr on the BBC One show The Italian Job – where they buy and renovate a house in rural Sicily.
