PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A new national poll has revealed the UK's favourite TV catchphrases of all time - and the top one is an Only Fools and Horses classic. In fact not one but two famous expressions from the cockney classic sitcom made it into the nation's top 10. Our favourite TV catchphrases were collected in a poll by Gala spins, the new sponsor of Celebrity Juice, in which 2,000 respondents voted for their top choices. And despite the large number of successful new comedies, it’s still the old classics viewers love the most. Brits named Only and Fools and Horses' Delboy's trademark phrase as their favourite. 'Lovely jubbly' Brits named Delboy's iconic line "Lovely jubbly" as their favourite catchphrase (Image: BBC) The smooth-talking South London market trader's signature line, "lovely jubbly", bagged 34% of the popular vote. The line was originally an advertising slogan for 'Jubbly', a triangular-shaped frozen orange drink popular in the 50s and 60s. But David Jason can take credit for later popularising the line as Delboy, who used it whenever he was pleased about something. No wonder the actor has been heralded a national treasure, when another of Delboy's iconic lines is also in the top 10. 'You plonker' His classic put down "you plonker" featured third on the list, with 23% of the popular vote. Meanwhile, fellow classic sitcom One Foot in the Grave came second - with Victor Meldrew’s "I don’t believe it" remembered fondly by 29% of Brits.

It's mad to think these TV lines have established themselves as firmly within the English language as Shakespeare's language did back in the day. Brtis favoured older shows over new ones, though; Gavin and Stacey, which first aired in 2007, was the newest show in the top 10, with Nessa’s classic greeting, ‘What’s occurring’?’ the favourite line of 15% of viewers. Nessa’s classic line ‘What’s occurring’?’ was the favourite amoung young Brits (Image: BBC) Nessa’s line was the favourite among young Brits, with nearly three in ten (28%) 18–24-year-olds choosing it as their favourite. All other age groups brought Delboy’s catchphrase out on top, and it was the most favoured line in almost every region - only Scotland preferred 'I don’t believe it’. Internationally, Friends was the highest ranked show, with Joey’s chat up line ‘How you doin’?’ favoured by 18%. Here are the full rankings.
