Why he might be annoying:

    He was not one of the original ten finalists on 'Pop Idol,' but was bumped up when Rik Waller withdrew with laryngitis.
    He changed his last name to Campbell 'because I feel so Scottish' (2010), then switched back to Danesh (2019).
    He married and divorced actress Natasha Henstridge.

Why he might not be annoying:

    Clinton Cards named him Male Valentine of the Year (2005).
    He wrote all the songs on his debut album.
    He was an ambassador for the Princes Trust charity.
    He was a good enough opera singer to be cast as the male lead, Escamillo, in the O2 Arena production of 'Carmen.' (2010)
    He suffered a nearly fatal cerebral edema after drinking dirty water from the Thames while filming a PSA for a charity water filter -- the filter in the ad was a nonfunctional mockup (2017).
