A third of people in a relationship consider their other half to be the “most annoying person they know” because of their irritating habits.

A poll of 2,000 people found they typically spend a fifth of the day feeling annoyed at their partner because of snoring, passing wind, loudness, messiness and rudeness.

Other top gripes include never listening, talking through TV shows and being bad with money.

While leaving crumbs on the kitchen side, using their phone mid-conversation and leaving clothes on the bedroom floor were other top annoying traits.

But 41 percent secretly love their partner’s irritating habits – and wouldn’t have them any other way.

LG Electronics commissioned the research as part of a campaign to show how smart technology can lessen the friction between couples at home.

Marina Clowes, from LG Electronics, said: “It’s no surprise to see some of the most common annoying partner habits that Brits have voted on. I’m sure we can all relate to some of these.

“It is interesting to see how many of these can be solved if you have the right smart technology products at home though, like TVs with algorithms that learn your preferred viewing genre, noise-cancelling earbuds, and even steam closets to revive your “floordrobe” items.

“We recognise the importance of the benefits tech products bring to families and life at home.

“We are always looking to see how we can add value and make them smarter, so your time becomes more available to do the things you love.”





Respondents also said their partners have an average of five annoying habits – and estimate they have the same amount.

And 37 percent reckon they annoy each other equally, though more than a quarter of men reckon they irritate their spouse more.

But it’s the minor niggles that 68 percent end up getting wound up by.

Although while more than a third will call out annoying behaviour every time, 52 percent pick their moment more carefully.

And when they do so, the reaction from their partner is to laugh about it and play it down according to a quarter, while one in five say they’re completely ignored – and only 15 percent apologise.

Nearly half admit to finding their other half more irritating since the pandemic began due to spending more time together in close proximity, with a third believing their relationship is under more pressure than ever.

While 45 percent also confessed to getting jealous of other couples and the relationship they have with each other, according to the study, via OnePoll.

Nearly six in ten also admitted they bicker with their partner about what to watch on the TV.

And when asked who usually wins in an argument, four out of ten said “nobody”.

However, positives to come out of the lockdowns included spending more time together generally, sharing more responsibility when it comes to chores and taking up new activities together.

LG Electronics has teamed up with Emma Bunton and her husband, Jade Jones, to show how smart technology can help lessen the friction between couples at home.

The Spice Girl has taken to Instagram to show a peek into her family life.

Emma Bunton said: “Over the past 18 months we have all spent a lot more time at home.

“From entertaining the kids to making work commitments easier to do from home, when your technology has you covered it gives you quality time with your family and space for you to live your best life.”
