Many of us are feeling the strain of living in isolation and clearly celebrities are no different. Due to spending more and more time together in one space, a number of our favourite TV stars have been venting about their partners' rather irritating habits they've picked up along the way or rather, noticed more since lockdown. From ignoring kitchen chores to tapping noisily on keyboards while working from home, take a look through our round-up of hilariously annoying habits. We think you'll be able to relate… 

Peter Andre

Peter Andre recently revealed that his wife Emily was frustrated with him after he accidentally showed their youngest Theo's face live on TV. The Mysterious Girl singer was appearing on Loose Women via video link when the show cut to him and an excitable Theo on his lap. The father-of-four tried every effort to keep the three-year-old's face covered with his hand, however Theo's face was seen by the audience and panellists. The little one's identity is usually kept off social media, so Emily wasn't best pleased with the incident. Taking to Instagram to share a screengrab of the TV moment, the doting dad remarked: "I'm sooo in the dog house. Hey accidents happen we are in lockdown... @loosewomen @itv."

Forgetting an anniversary is an annoying habit that many couples can relate to. And Loose Women panellist Nadia Sawalha and her husband Mark recently celebrated their wedding anniversary, but it was Nadia that had, not only forgotten, but got the year wrong! The actress explained on an episode of Loose Women that, despite her husband having a great memory, she admits she doesn't, and her followers eventually reminded her of the correct number. "Well first of all I forgot it was our anniversary, our 17th anniversary, and then I realised that I'd forgotten that it wasn't, a whole year [had gone], because it was my 18th anniversary!" We've all been there...

Ruth Langsford

Ruth recently scolded husband Eamonn Holmes during This Morning for his loud chewing. She joked: "Yesterday, I was over the other side of the kitchen, you were sitting down at the dining room table. I was miles away from you – and you were eating grapes. How can I hear you eating grapes from that distance unless you're chomping? There was noise, I turned around and said, 'what are you eating?' you said 'grapes' and I said, 'how can I hear you eating a grape from here?' And you slurp tea, I've noticed. You slurp."

Speaking earlier this week on the ITV daytime show, the mum-of-three said: "Dan is obviously working from home and I've discovered something that I didn't know before that is really annoying - he taps and types really loudly, there is no reason to hit those keys as loudly as he does, and I'm like shut up! Don't do that!"

"I was just playing some tunes on a Wednesday night and Roch came in to tell me to turn it down as she does, so I started playing some tunes that I knew she would enjoy," explained Marvin.
