Yoko Ono's presence in the run up to the break up of The Beatles has recently been dubbed "annoying".

The group's former tour manager Tony Bramwell has been spilling the beans on the time when tensions began to run high between the Fab Four.

He said that the situation before the Beatles split was "very strained".

"Things were getting a bit difficult, strained between the mop-tops," he said.

"Unfortunately, Yoko's presence accelerated the whole process, you know - don't take your wife to work.

"Suddenly there's another presence in the studio disturbing the status quo, which was annoying."
