Not exactly a phrase, but the way that the Daily Mail always manages to slip into an article the house value of the person the article is about.

Person A is to 'wed' person B. Who uses this stilted expression in real life?

''Reveals heartbreak...''
For example ''*insert name of Z-List celeb* reveals heartbreak over love split/affair/long lost relative.''

And for the notoriously attention seeking Z-list celebs who are selling their sob stories to magazines every single week, they've made a new phrase, which is ''Reveals NEW heartbreak.''

I find the terms "bedded" and "romped" highly annoying, if only for the reason that no-one uses these terms in real life. These terms also seem to be exclusivley used for Premier League footballer and their "conquests"

Also "world exclusive"

A world exclusive isn't the first baby pics of a Jolie-Pitt kid. A world exclusive would be the announcement that aids or cancer have been cured.

I always despised the term 'stunner' or even 'stunna'.

When a couple's relationship is in trouble, we often read that they are "holding crisis talks". They're not world leaders or government officials! These "talks" also sometimes happen abroad, so it's probably just the man trying to win back the woman by taking her away and splashing some cash!

Oh and let's not forget "the One Direction hunk/heartthrob".

When 'world exclusive' is used in relation to an interview or story relating to, say, Kerry Katona or Michelle Heaton or 'soap star'. People in this country barely care, let alone the rest of the world!

The need to always include the value of the house where the subject lives.

Unless it's about the Joli/Pitt/Aniston in which case the jurno made the whole thing up. Nothing written about those three is real.

Which translates as "something we made up because we can't be bothered doing any real journalism."

Argh! Me too, such a horrible word and because nine times out of ten they're about as "stunning" as house brick anyway...

I can't stand "pal"... Who the chuff uses that word?! And "folks". Puke.

And don't forget- they can only romp or bed a stunna in a "love nest" (actually I've just remembered that a friend on FB has a habit of tagging himself and his girlfriend in "the love nest"- it makes me feel ever so slightly sick ).

"Sparked fury" annoys me too- it normally means that one sad person with no life has complained about something....
