Kerry Katona named as neighbour from hell

KERRY Katona has been named a nightmare celebrity neighbour in a poll along with X Factor twins John and Edward.

The former Atomic Kitten singer, who was dropped as the face of supermarket chain Iceland after she was filmed apparently taking drugs, also made the top 10. She was joined by the X Factor duo John and Edward Grimes, hell-raising rocker Ozzy Osbourne and foul-mouthed chef Gordon Ramsay.

Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty -- who has hit the headlines in the past for infuriating landlords by throwing parties and leaving his homes dirty, blood-spattered and filled with litter -- was voted the least desirable neighbour.


Fellow troubled singer and friend of Doherty, Amy Winehouse, came a close second in the poll.

Party-loving glamour model Katie Price, aka Jordan, was voted into third place.

Comedian and actor Stephen Fry, who has bonded with his fans over social networking site Twitter, was voted the most desired celebrity neighbour, while Cheryl Cole proved she was everyone's favourite girl-next-door, being named in second place.

Property developer and TV presenter Kirstie Allsopp, co-host of house-hunting show Location, Location, Location, came third in the poll, followed by TV chef and school-dinners campaigner Jamie Oliver.

Meanwhile, Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson was voted the fifth most desirable star to have as a neighbour, despite his love of loud, fast cars. How To Look Good Naked presenter Gok Wan and comedian Ricky Gervais also made the top 10 favoured celebrity neighbours.
