A royal snog, one cockroach and a bunch of morons on TV

We’re a sentimental bunch of old softies if our top TV moment of 2011 is anything to go by.

Prince William being badgered into giving his new bride a second kiss in front of the masses huddled outside Buckingham Palace has come top in the poll looking back at the year’s telly.

No surprise that the moment beat Fatima Whitbread, suffering the indignity of a cockroach crawling up her nose in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, into second place.

But when you consider other TV highlights it’s clear 2011 wasn’t full of rich pickings.

This was the year that a bunch of inarticulate morons from The Only Way Is Essex won a BAFTA.

No wonder we preferred that royal snog.
