A poll of 2,000 adults who celebrate Christmas found the hilarious moment from 1996 where Del Boy and Rodney unknowingly prevent a crime – while dressed as the dynamic duo – is top of the tree.
Second place went to another moment from the Peckham-based sitcom – when Del finally becomes a millionaire.
The ‘Walking in the Air’ scene from The Snowman came third, while Geraldine’s sprouts ordeal from The Vicar of Dibley came fourth.
And Andre Previn playing ‘all the right notes’ on 1971’s Morecambe and Wise Christmas Show secured fifth spot.
Commissioned by Samsung, the study found 48 per cent think TV is one of the best things about the holidays.
As such, those polled will watch 10 hours of TV in total from Christmas Eve through to Boxing Day.
Zeena Hill, TV/AV spokesperson at Samsung Electronics UK&I, said: “We’ve been fortunate to experience many amazing Christmas TV moments over the years.
“And this year is no different with particular stand outs including The Great Snowman and a Ghosts Christmas special expected to appear on our screens this festive season.
“We know the viewing experience is just as important as the content itself.”
