As we enter the final days of 2015, we round out the year with our annual list of things that need to f*** off back to wherever they came from.
It's been a particularly busy year for awful trends, fashions and people, however now that 2015 is drawing to a close, we can say goodbye and good luck to a few of these.
10. JUICE CLEANSES & DETOX DIETS
"Yeah, I'm on a water cleanse for the next three days, then a three-day juice cleanse and then finally an aromatherapy cleanse to balance out my chi." Listen, you're not Gwyneth Paltrow. And if you were Gwyneth Paltrow, you're still the absolute worst. And this shit is scientifically proven to be a load of arse.
9. THE DRESS, THE DRESS 2.0, THE DRESS 3.0, THE DRESS XP
Yes, we were all enamoured by The Dress and yes, it drove us all mad. It's the really crap copycats that followed that drove us over the edge. IS THIS THE DRESS 2.0? No, man, it's a banana.
8. ZAYN MALIK
Nothing in this world is more depressing than these words: Ex-Boyband Member. And that's exactly what Zayn Malik is. So long, Zayn Malik. Your facial hair was too perfectly sculptured for this world and your sense of style made it seem like you were kicked through a River Island / Top Man.
7. "WATCH ME WHIP, WHIP, WATCH ME NAE, NAE"
Society is crumbling around us and this is the reason why.
6. TAYLOR SWIFT BRINGING PEOPLE ONSTAGE AND HER SQUAD
"Ladies, put your hands together for _________!" Eventually, this grew to become a meme in and of itself. First, it was pretty cool that she was... y'know... recognising people other than herself. But then it just became "HEY LOOK WHO I CAN FORCE TO STAND ONSTAGE NEXT TO ME AND HAVE THEM AWKWARDLY DANCE AROUND WHILE I SING ABOUT MY EX-BOYFRIENDS HA HA HA SQUAD GOALS." Enough, lady. Jesus.

5. RELATIONSHIP GOALS / SQUAD GOALS / HAIR GOALS / GOALS IN GENERAL
Sharing a picture of two posed models laughing and pushing cake into one another's mouth followed by a caption that reads 'Relationship Goals' is grounds for permanent un-Friending from Facebook. Better still, go around to that person's house and explain to them why they're being un-Friended both on social media and in real life. Sure, having something to strive towards is a positive. This, on the other hand, is pathetic. You're better than this. We're all better than this.

4. DONALD TRUMP
At first, we all laughed and chuckled. Donald Trump, the guy from The Apprentice, is running for President? There were some out there who even thought that he was a made-up character. Nope, Trump was real. Can't say the same about his hair. However, it's pretty clear that, for all his deeply racist rhetoric, some Americans just seem to LOVE him. There isn't a chance of him being President, is there? If the US is living under President Trump this time next year, we'll know that Western civilisation is doomed. So that'll be something to look forward to for 2017.
3. THE MAN BUN
How the Man Bun continued on past 2014 is a mystery to us all. Thankfully, it's dying slowly so that now, all you see with them are barbers / tattoo artists / slam poets walking around with the man bun or people who think those people are cool. Friends, they're not. At all. They're the absolute worst. In about twenty years, maybe less, you're going to look back at photos of yourself and realise you were a complete and utter goon. You know the way your parents look at photos of themselves in bell-bottoms and moustaches? Same deal. Worse still, however, is the Hun Bun. What is the Hun Bun, you ask? The Hun Bun is basically like a clump of hair that looks like the Poo Emoji dumped on a woman's head. No, really.
This is my 1st time in Las Vegas and I was expecting weird. The blue man-bun guy didn't disappoint. pic.twitter.com/e5JHlNGFnt

In 2013, Cronuts were listed as one of Time's greatest inventions for that year. Come to 2015 and we're so f***ing over them, it's actually hilarious. People were hashtagging and Instagramming and Snapchatting their Cronuts. They became the go-to snack for dickheads who worked for International Bluechip IT Company That We're Not Mentioning But You Know The One We Mean and their ilk. Cronuts were the very definition of the word 'notions'.

1. ED SHEERAN
Ed Sheeran is Nando's in human form. Absolutely fine for what it is, a bit bland and beige, nothing terribly original / exciting about them and they're everywhere. Everywhere. They crop up when you least expect and, for the most part, it's fine but now it's just getting to be too much. Sure enough, Ed Sheeran's taking a break to focus on being more beige / bland probably, but we're stuck with Nando's everywhere. And honestly, if we admit it truthfully, we kinda hate them.
