Rob Rinder's verdict on what a pain you are . . .

Mostly "A" – You are extremely annoying

Judge Rinder says: I always try to be kind rather than truthful, but sometimes only the truth will do.

So I say this truthfully: I’m afraid to say you are a desperately bad individual and there is very little hope for you.

I generally believe that even someone with the emotional range of an airline salad can be improved, but if you haven’t noticed anything wrong with your behaviour up until now I really do despair.

My advice for your partner would be to leave at once. And ensure they get a good lawyer.

Mostly "B" – You are slightly annoying at times

Judge Rinder says: We all have selfish tendencies from time to time, and I am suspicious of couples who say they don’t find each other annoying.

If you have never felt volcanically angry over a shoe left out or a dishwasher loaded wrongly, it can only be because you’re vapid, stupid and have no opinions about the world.

So if you are a B, you’re normal. I advise that you listen to your other half when they tell you how your inconsiderate behaviour makes them feel.

As my mum always said, God gave you two ears but only one gob for a reason.

There’s no legal remedy for being a bit of a pain but together you can navigate each other’s imperfections – and keep the divorce lawyers out of work.

Mostly "C" – You are not annoying at all

Judge Rinder says: If you are a C, I imagine you must be charming to live with but have all the sex appeal of one of Giles Brandreth’s jumpers.

All relationships need a bit of fizz and interest, so learn to stand up for yourself now and again.

Because you might be a bit too perfect. Either that, or you’re a liar.
