We all love sitting down to watch our favourite soap but, when it comes to characters, which couple do we like the best?

Well, a new survey has found that Coronation Street's Jack and Vera Duckworth are the nation's favourite television pair!

MobileSlots.com spoke to 600 TV fans and found the iconic couple are officially soap's golden couple after earning 23 per cent of the vote.

Following close behind was Eastenders' Den and Angie Watts with 19 per cent - did you know their big break-up on Christmas Day is still British soap's most-watched event to date?

Corrie's Stan and Hilda Ogden took the third spot, while Neighbours' Scott and Charlene came fourth. Who can forget when Jason Donovan and Kylie Minogue released their hit single 'Especially For You'?!

Coming fifth was Eastenders' faves Ricky Butcher and Bianca and, on the other side of the pond, JR and Sue Ellen Ewing from 80s soap Dallas popped up as sixth place.

Other couples on the list included Ken and Deirdree Barlow, Phil and Sharon Mitchell and Aussies Karl and Susan Kennedy.

A spokesperson for the survey said: "At some point in our lives we all get hooked on one soap or another, so it was really interesting to see who the public named their favourite.

"It is interesting to see that so many of the classic couples came high up on the list whereas many prominent 'modern-day' soap couples have not."
