From piggy snorts to evil cackles, some celebrity laughs are so funny they make us cry

Happy Sunday, people. We know what you need in your lives today – a bit of laughter.

Whether you’re nursing a hangover, trying to put off that stack of ironing or looking for something to amuse the kids we promise you’ll enjoy our run down of the funniest celeb laughs out there.

Who knew Cameron Diaz was a secret snorter? Or that Amanda Holden sounded a bit witchlike?

Next time you accidentally make a pig noise when you’re laughing, rest assured, you’re not the only one…

1. Cameron Diaz

Yes, she might be one of Hollywood’s radiant beauties, but very few chaps could sit through a date with Cameron and her piggy snorts without wanting to whip out a nasal decongestant…

2. Jimmy Carr

Jimmy’s hysterical, high-pitched hiccoughs make him sound like a demented circus clown going crazy on helium. Or a nervy comedian who knows the taxman is at the door…

3. Fern Britton

Compare and contrast:

Exhibit A: Fern wheezing away at a ‘Uranus’ joke:

And exhibit B: Muttley the dog from Wacky Races:


4. Seth Rogen

The sound of a knackered old motorbike spluttering out, Seth’s LOLs are so famous they even have their own Facebook page. Just when you thought things couldn’t get more annoying, here he’s joined by Cameron Diaz’s guffaws too.

5. Amanda Holden

We thought it was only witches from Disney films that made this ‘mwah, hah hah!’ noise. We were wrong. Bless her.

6. Ricky Gervais

Sounds like a flock of parrots being harpooned with a rusty arrow. Not pleasant.

7. Natalie Portman

HONK! HONK! HONK! Natalie’s laugh during her Best Actress speech at 2011’s Golden Globes led many people to believe she was raised by sea-lions.

8. Adele

Her singing influences may include old soul singers like Etta James, but Adele’s cackle clearly owes everything to this man…

Carry On actor Sid James!

9. Tom Cruise

Hearty Hollywood laugh or sinister cackle? You decide…

10/ Caroline Flack

Strictly Come Dancing star Caroline’s throaty, laddy chuckle makes us suspect she’d be the one in devil horns urging everybody else to pole-dance on a hen night.

11. Mark-Francis Vandelli, Made In Chelsea

Mark-Francis’ horsey snorts are so hilarious we DARE you to watch this video and not laugh too.

12. Charlotte Crosby, Geordie Shore

Aw! We love you Charlotte but this demoinc chuckle is frankly TERRIFYING.

13. Beavis and Butt-Head

Sofa-sharing pals Beavis and Butt-Head were the 1990s’ 3D zit-faced versions of Gogglebox’s Steph and Dom: sitting around all day, watching MTV, scratching their genitals spouting criticisms (‘you suck, fart-knocker!’) in between annoying ‘heh-huh-heh’ sniggers.

14. Miley Cyrus

Miley’s outrageous giggles (or are they burps?) sound like a baby that needs treating for a serious case of wind.

15. Sandra and Sandy, Gogglebox

Has all the sonic appeal of hearing two opera singers gasping for air…
