French First Lady Carla Bruni has been voted the country's most irritating celebrity in a new poll.

The 43-year-old topped the list of media personalities that most got on French people's nerves, with 52 per cent of people saying they found her presence 'highly grating'.

She was followed by veteran screen star Alain Delon on 47 per cent and actor Gerard Depardieu on 46 per cent in the Harris poll of 1,713 adults.

On top of that, the poll to find the country's most annoying people found her husband Nicolas Sarkozy to be one of France's most irksome politicians.

He was voted France's fourth most unbearable politician, behind socialist presidential candidate Segolene Royal, interior minister Brice Hortefeux and National Front leader Jean-Marie Le Pen.

"This couple clearly have a lot of PR work to do for themselves over the next 12 months," the Daily Mail quoted French daily Le Parisien as saying. (ANI)
