One Direction appeared on The Xtra Factor a few weeks after rumours spread that Harry and Caroline had shared a snog. So when Harry brings in flowers for Caroline’s co-host Olly Murs, it’s awkward enough, but then Olly starts to joke with Harry that he likes the 25 and over category. And he asks which girl Harry fancies the most, and one of the boys pipes up “Caroline”. Aww.
It’s bad enough that Sean Conlon barely did a thing in boyband 5ive, but after finding “the real Sean Conlon”, the best he could do is audition for The Voice and then be rejected by every single judge. He was vaguely remembered by Jessie J, who was about 9 at the height of 5ive’s chart reign. Cringe!
The preening metrosexual Joey Essex of The Only Way Is Essex not only invents words – ‘reem’ being his favourite – but has no idea that blowdrying and hairdrying is the same thing!

Forgetting that the BRIT awards have settled down a bit since his Britpop heyday, Liam Gallagher caused a ruckus at the 2010 event.

Way back in the first series of Made In Chelsea, Hugo and Spencer decided to whisk Millie and Caggie off on holiday for Cags’ birthday. Bit awkward when Caggie tells Amber and Rosie – who’s just had to fend off Hugo’s advances, even though she sort of likes him. It’s funny watching now, knowing what’s going to happen – that Millie will hook up with Hugo, and that he will cheat on her with none other than Rosie!
After performing Purple Rain perfectly on The X Factor, standout contestant Misha B was taken down by Tulisa for apparently bullying her contestants backstage. Her popularity dwindled fast and she was soon voted off of the competition.
After they broke up, Katie Price spoke about how she miscarried Peter Andre’s baby. When he went on This Morning, he was unhappy with Fern Britton and Phillip Schofield’s awkward questions about his private life, but politely held his ground.
Fair play to Sarah Harding for holding this note for so long. It might be the wrong one, but at least she stuck by it – much to her Girls Aloud colleagues’ shock. Luckily, Cheryl sees the funny side, and gives her a little tap on the arm to let her know it’ll all be fine, as long as they can contain their giggles!
He’s wanted to take an adult direction in his career for a while now – forgoing Disney films in favour of edgier roles. But dropping a condom at the premiere of a kids’ film in front of the gathered press, paps and video cameras might be a step too far. That’s why he can barely contain his laughter!
