Poll: Where do you stand on pimple-popping as a pastime?

It all comes down to this.

WHEN IT COMES to pimple-popping, most of us tend to fall into one of two camps; it either nauseates you entirely or you get a real kick out of ‘tending’ to those whiteheads, no matter whose they might be.

Christ, you may even watch those pimple-popping videos for pleasure.

So, why do we mention it, says you.

Well, over the weekend, Harry Redknapp watched on in thinly-veiled horror as his ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here’ campmates began popping each other’s spots in what could easily be classed as a questionable bonding exercise.

Rita Simons, Fleur East, Emily Atack and Sair Khan did the rounds, and basically went to town on each other’s blemishes – something which nearly sent poor Harry over the edge entirely.

Commenting on the conduct of his campmates, the 71-year-old said:

I did find the spot popping a bit gross, you know, they were all getting round like it was a spot popping party.

“It’s a bit unusual you know, Rita don’t care, she don’t give a monkeys,” he added.

But what about you? Where do you stand on pimple-popping as a pastime?

Poll Results:

I'd pop my own, but would rather die than pop someone else's. (1235)
I'd pop mine, yours, and anyone who'd let me near them. (620)
I have a favourite pimple-popping video, and I wish I could be a professional pimple-popper. (287)
It makes me sick, and I don't even pop my own. (203)
