That Buzzcocks ep was truly hilarious. Simon Amstell basically flat-out asked him if he was trying too hard to be 'cockney' at all times.
Personally, I can't dislike him too much. By the same token, you could hate the overexcited spaniel humping your leg, but it would never understand why. Instead you've just got to take it aside, quietly, and have it neutered. Then give it a pat on the head and a bowl of tasty kibbles.
