Research by MoveStreets, the property portal designed for the mobile generation, has revealed which TV and movie villains we would least like to have as a neighbour and there’s one that ranks far higher than the rest.
The survey commissioned by MoveStreets asked recent UK homebuyers who they would least like as a neighbour – not that any of them are particularly appealing.
By far the most feared nightmare neighbour is Pennywise the Clown. Hardly surprising given the recent reboot of the IT films which have helped scar a whole new generation since the original was released in 1990.
Lord Voldermort also ranked high as one of the people we’d least like as a neighbour, while Aunt Lydia from The Handmaid’s Tale came in third.
Despite being one of the best liked TV baddies to hit our screens in recent times, Villanelle from Killing Eve came in joint fourth with a blast from the past in Richard Hillman from Corrie.
Hillman was followed by fellow soap bad guy Dirty Den from Eastender, with Mr Burns, Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones, Tony Soprano and the Deamon Headmaster completing the top 10.
Adam Kamani, CEO and Co-Founder property portal of MoveStreets, commented:
“There’s nothing worse than scrimping and saving to climb the property ladder, finding that perfect house and negotiating the home buying process, only to find you have moved in next to some nightmare neighbours.
But it could certainly be worse, they could be neighbours from your actual nightmares and so you can count yourself lucky that it’s not Pennywise, Voldermort or Aunt Lydia you’re inviting to the house warming.”
