When they are talking about a pop star, say Jessie J, and refer to them as 'the Price Tag singer' etc. I don't know why but it annoys me!
YES I hate this too, I get that people might need the clue but it does grate on me!

More phrases and cliches that I hate:

sneak a peek (also because "peek" is often spelled "peak")
emotional plea
damning report
swingeing cuts
bubbly (think Lisa Riley, Vanessa Feltz)
dangerous curves
"Booze/Broke/Bulging Britain"
"The parents of the victim spoke from their 600,000 home..."
referring to children as "schoolgirl" or "schoolboy"
