Slideshow: People we'd like to leave behind in 2012

It’s that time of year folks — when we like to reflect on the triumphs and tragedies of the year as it comes to a close.

No will forget the icons we lost, the stories that shaped our world and the landmarks in politics, the arts and culture from 2012.

But of course, with almost every narrative there is a seedy underbelly. We must not forget the figures which made the past year most unpleasant, even though we’d like to.

So without further ado, please check out our slideshow of the famous faces we’d like a reprieve from seeing in the new year, although something tells us we won’t be so lucky.
