Chris Tarrant’s ‘irritating’ habit during ‘obnoxious’ interview angers viewers

This Morning viewers were annoyed today by Chris Tarrant’s ‘irritating’ habit.

The former Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? host, who admitted he didn’t watch the new series, kept doing something that viewers found very annoying.

Chris was labelled ‘obnoxious’ by some angry viewers as he kept mocking presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

But it was his ‘finger picking’ that really caused a stir, with Chris repeatedly fiddling with his nails throughout the interview.

While talking about the new series of Chris Tarrant’s Extreme Railways, the presenter kept playing with his nails.
