There have been some pretty exciting and downright hilarious TV moments from the last 12 months - here are the top 40 as voted for by Brits.

The study, which polled 2,000 British adults, found that the most memorable moment from TV this year was - unsurprisingly - Warren Beatty announcing the wrong title at the Oscars.

He, along with Faye Dunaway, was handed the wrong envelope - meaning that La La Land was announced as the winner of Best Picture instead of the rightful winner, Moonlight.

Along with that hot mess was the poignant One Love Manchester concert organised by Ariana Grande after her concert in June was targeted by extremists who killed 22 people in the blast.

There was also Debbie McGee's shocking flexibility on Strictly Come Dancing - and the return of Eleven in Stranger Things.

Here's a look back through the best moments on TV from 2017...
