2 Eastenders Eastenders EastEnders is a British soap opera; the first episode was broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC One on 19 February 1985. EastEnders storylines examine the domestic and professional lives of the people who live and work in the fictional London Borough of Walford in the East End of London.

Death, Drama, murder, crime, death, drama, murder, crime, more death, murder, crime and drama is basically what this show is about. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

The one thing that shows how bad the BBC can go with making T.V. shows.

All the characters do is; OH NO STACY DIED! - Harri666

This is all I here on it.
Worst season: Season 3 - lizard302

3 Jim'll Fix It

This has got to be the creepiest show ever also judging on what jimmy did but I always hated that sow

I just re watched an episode an he called a little five year old girl his girlfriend. GIRLFRIEND! He was under our nose the whole time.

For all those who don't know why it's on here, Jimmy Savile, the host, has had a series of sexual assaults link to him, that only came to the surface about three years ago. Do yourself a favour and do not watch this show, nor consider watching anything linked to this pedofile.

Shown before I was born but Jimmy is a pedophile.

4 Take Me Out Take Me Out Take Me Out is a dating game show presented by comedian Paddy McGuinness. Based on the Australian show Taken Out, it began airing on ITV in the United Kingdom and simulcast on TV3 in the Republic of Ireland on 2 January 2010. A pilot episode was for Channel 4 in 2009, but it was ITV who picked it up more.

And yet another crappy show from ITV! - ArpstaAmy333

Why isn't this higher? This show is terrible.

5 Peppa Pig Peppa Pig

Peppa pig has her nose, ears, eyes, and mouth all on one side of her face. Does that mean that when she turns her face around, it will just be completely flat and have nothing on the other side? What kind of drug were the artists on when they illustrated this show? Looks like we're having bacon for dinner tonight.

That show is so annoying just cancel it!

It's is REALLY annoying! For some reason I liked this show when I was four, but when I was 5 I didn't like it. - funnyuser

Must be number one on this list!

6 Teletubbies Teletubbies Teletubbies is a British pre-school children's television series created by Ragdoll Productions' Anne Wood CBE and Andrew Davenport, who wrote each of the show's 365 episodes .

Bad news everyone. Teletubbies is coming back in 2016.

I hate this how! Good thing it got cancelled!

This isn't even british

It should be on 10000000000000000000 its dosnt sucks and I lOVE teletubbies

7 I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!

Why is this here - lizard302

By far the worst show I've ever experienced.

Eww they eat cockroaches - Harri666

8 The Only Way Is Essex
9 Geordie Shore

It's just the British version of Jersey Shore. - ArpstaAmy333

10 Bargain Hunt

Only sad people go on this show. They have given up on life.

If there was ever a program that disserved to taken off the air, never shown again and destroyed, it would be this horrible mess of daytime T.V..

Truly, truly awful. T.V. for people who have given up on life.

The Contenders

11 Celebrity Love Island
12 Mrs. Brown's Boys

It's so bad, how could this crap win over big bang theory, this is a ripoff of the three stooges and that isn't even good - Harri666

This is Irish, you eejits. - Puga

Dreadful slapstick and inuendo

My grandmother said this program was good, but it was too crude, unfunny and vulgar. I like Irish comedy, E.G. Father Ted, but this is it at its worst.

13 Would I Lie to You?

Given the great standard of british comedy panel shows, you'd be forgiven to think that a show like this would be a sure-fire winner? Well it isn't.. maybe it's the two desperately unfunny team captains or something else, but this just gets on my nerves.

14 The Jeremy Kyle Show

The show is awful

This should be number one

I hate this

Even worse than the Jerry Springer Show!
The Brits must forget all about being civilised

15 Horrid Henry Horrid Henry

The reason why I LOATHE, Horrid Henry is because of his voice that makes fun of British accents and make them look bad. If you think Horrid Henry's voice is worse, then listen to Perfect Peters! (his brother's! ) Horrid Henry in my opinion is selfish, a spoiled whiny brat, mean to his family, and teaches bad lessons! What is really disturbing in the show is that when Henry tells out, "NO! " His throat wiggles... So yeah, those are the reasons

I've never been a fan of Horrid Henry. - The Ultimate Daredevil, grossed out and bored by his memories of Horrid Henry

Horrid Henry is actually voiced by a female. I used to watch this a lot when I was younger, and I had all the books.

All that boy cares about is himself. He is a male version of Peppa Pig because they both bully their brothers. Henry is a rude aggressive naughty boy who is very disgusting and he’s really selfish. He asked the queen how many TVs she got, all he cares is junk food, he is horrid to his parents and brother, hates girls and all he listens to is the stupid boy rats! I am never watching this show again and I will throw out books!

16 Coronation Street

So overrated! Stop those unnecessary character deaths! Please cancel this! - ArpstaAmy333

Corrie has been on the air for over 50 Years, they won't be cancelled - RickyReeves

17 Chop Socky Chooks

What kind of name is "Chop Socky Chooks"?! That name is terrible.

To be honest this show was just terrible when I was a kid. It just had no meaning and the storylines were rubbish

18 Loose Women

Sexism made into a T.V. show. If it were men saying the same things about women there would be a bloody storm

Pure agony.

19 Waterloo Road

Awful dialog, predictable stories and unbelievably unbelievable. Do I really have to say more?

20 Boohbah Boohbah Boohbah is a British children's television programme created by Anne Wood. It premiered on 14 April 2003 on ITV in the United Kingdom, followed by its Nick Jr.

The brown boohbah looks like a turd.

What are these...things? They're ugly! - RiverClanRocks
