Coronation Street's Hilda and Stan Ogden have been voted the most romantic TV couple of all time.

They topped the poll with 34% of the votes.

Friends couple Monica and Chandler took second place with 22%, with co-stars Rachel and Ross in third.

The poll was conducted by cable TV company NTL with 5000 voters.

NTL executive Rod Henwood said: "Britain's longest running soap can today celebrate as we reveal that the nation is still in love with the infamous Hilda and Stan Ogden.

"It seems that their unaffected love and the daily ups and downs of Weatherfield, have left a far stronger impression on the great British public than the gloss of Friends or Frasier.

"Perhaps ITV has found a sure-fire way to boost its ratings - bring back the type of romance that created that long-standing 'Ogden magic'!"

The full top 10 is as follows: 1, Hilda and Stan Ogden - Coronation Street - 34%; 2, Monica and Chandler - Friends - 22%; 3, Rachel and Ross - Friends - 12%; 4, Dot and Jim - Eastenders - 10%; 5, Niles and Daphne - Frasier - 6%; 6, Scott and Charlene - Neighbours - 5%; 7, Jonathan and Jennifer - Hart to Hart - 4%; 8, Sonya and Jamie - Eastenders - 3%; 9, Del Boy and Raquel - Only Fools and Horses - 2%; and 10 Barry and Nathalie - Eastenders - 2%.
