49=. Michael Owen, Footballer
The occasional Manchester United striker got into trouble last summer when he called Newcastle United, his former employer, a "poor" team. More recently he fell into the web of Twitter's celebrity provoker-in-chief, Piers Morgan, who called the footballer a "benchwarmer", leading to a petty spat of the sort Morgan conducts so freely. It climaxed when the CNN presenter and former newspaper editor hit out with, weirdly: "My pecs are bigger than your entire body." Otherwise, Owen is more animated than his TV persona, dispensing such gems as "How was that a yellow card? Keepers continue to be protected species."
