Title card for Most Annoying People 2009.

Status: Partially Found

Most Annoying Person was a British television programme that was broadcast on BBC Three from December 27th, 2006 to December 26th, 2011. Narrated by television and radio presenter Richard Bacon and was shown during the end of the year. The show counted down the 100 "most irritating" people of said year, with celebrities, pop stars, trends, and politicians included.

The show includes an assortment of comedians, journalists and celebrities (some of which were on list) commentating about each entry. Since they had a run time of 3-5 hours, they were split into 2 or 3 episodes with the other half of the countdown list airing tomorrow after.


5 of the 6 episodes are considered lost, and it is very difficult to find full version of them other then small clips on YouTube. Searching episodes before 2009 gives little to no information. At one point, UK users could watch them on-demand using BBC iPlayer but are now unavailable.[1]

On May 18th, 2020, the full episode in 4 parts of Most Annoying People 2009 was found on Veoh. The episodes were uploaded to the Internet Archive for preservation.
