Flatmate from hell
It's official. The votes are in and Pete Doherty has been named the celebrity flatmate from hell, taking the victory in a huge landslide.
For all his rock n roll charm and misunderstood ways, the headline-courting Babyshambles frontman has been placed top of the list of flatmates that people would dread to share a flat with. According to the survey, commissioned by freeads.co.uk, Doherty took 60 per cent of the votes overall.
"We were expecting Pete to feature highly on the flatmates from hell list, but taking nearly 60 per cent of the votes was a landslide we weren't expecting," commented freeads.co.uk chief executive Duncan Horton, according to the Daily Record.
At the other end of the scale cheeky chappie radio presenter Chris Moyles was the most popular celebrity flatmate, followed by soul singer Amy Winehouse and the ever-pleasant Cameron Diaz.
Other celebs who did not fare so well in the rankings included Britney Spears, who was voted as an undesirable flatmate by more than a quarter of people questioned.
Victoria Beckham, Madonna and Simon Cowell were also among the flatmate from hell list, as well as Doherty's long-standing love interest Kate Moss.
