Kerry Katona, has appeared in television commercials, notably for Iceland and Asda supermarkets. She is now appearing in a tv ad advising people who need to take out short term loans. She is most annoying and irritates me just to watch her.

Most of all the adverts annoy me but the Meercat ones I love Alexandra and poor Sergei :-D

The over-use of the word 'help' . 'We are here to help...' Help you empty your wallet more like.

Then there is the slightly stuttering style of delivery where the actor/actress tries to give the impression that they are a member of the public extolling the virtues of the product, and underneath is says 80% said they would recommend it (out of 132 asked....!)

I have to agree with Annx, I find those Meerkats really annoying and now they are at the start of Corrie each time too!!

I detest the adverts.

And the bingo ones, and, well, all the gambling ones & 'quick loan' ones..

I love the Meercats

Hate the AVIVA ones that bloke makes me cringe everytime

Hate the "You buy one you get one free"

I'd forgotten about the Aviva adverts - probably because I switch channels when they come on!
