Anything to add to the list?

Does someone leaving the lights on or having the tv volume to high bug you? Well, you’re not alone.

A new study has found that seven in 10 feel like all they do is have a go at loved ones to get things done.

Researchers from surveyed 2,000 adults about things people nag other about.

They found among the most common were not turning the TV off, turning the heating on too high and leaving bins overflowing.

The average person reckons they nag at least three times a day.

Though 72% admit they pester others when they could be doing something themselves.

Turning the telly down, not replacing the toilet roll and walking past things on the stairs which need carrying up are also among the top things people nag their housemates about.

Other irritations include not making the beds, never recycling and leaving the toilet seat up.
