OOF, harsh.

In life, we usually like to keep things exciting.

But inevitably, there will always be things that bore us.

So OnePoll has decided to find out what bores people the most and made a list on it.

2,000 people took part in a survey commissioned by Jet2Holidays, and it found that not having wifi was the most boring thing in life.

That was followed at #2 by 'hearing about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle'.

And at number 3 was the topic of politics.

There were also a few surprises in there, with 'Adele's music' also making the list at #28.

Also getting labelled 'boring' were a number of sports, which I'm sure plenty of people will disagree with.

The sports that made the list include Formula One, Darts, Golf, Cricket,  Snooker and Football.

Here's the full list:

  1. Having no Wi-Fi
  2. Hearing about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
