Telly addicts channel anger
MORE than half of Brits argue over who is in charge of the TV remote on a weekly basis, a survey has revealed.
And 35 per cent are even more controlling as they row over the remote every day.
One in five admit to hiding the remote from their partners, family, housemates or children.
The survey of 2,000 people, by Currys and PC World, looked into our worst telly habits causing arguments at home.
Channel hopping (30%), deleting recorded shows (11%) and losing the remote (10%) are all key issues.
Under the sofa, in the bed and behind cushions were just a few of the top remote hiding places.
A massive 40% of those polled said the biggest argument is over volume – making it the nation’s worst TV habit.
