Emmerdale has scored a resounding victory in our favourite show of 2003 poll. Despite competition from the likes of The Office, EastEnders, Prime Suspect and Only Fools And Horses, viewers came out in force to back the ITV1 soap. It drew 37% of the votes in the phone poll. Trailing far behind in second place was Only Fools And Horses.
The soap's spokesman expressed delight at the result and thanked Teletext viewers. "Emmerdale are delighted to receive such great public recognition. We will endeavour to continue to deliver fantastic storylines and high-quality production in 2004.
Among other popular shows, Only Fools And Horses came second with 16% and in third was EastEnders (15%). Coronation Street came fourth with 14%. Despite the hype about The Office Christmas specials, it came fifth, with 7%. But it did prove more popular than Prime Suspect, in sixth. Least favourite show of 2003 was Wife Swap.
