In 5th place was the Corrie tram crash in 2010.

John Sewell, spokesman for paid survey site which commissioned the research, said:

"There have been many brilliant and gripping storylines over the years - whether they are tearjerkers like the moment Hayley died in Coronation Street or high drama like the live tram crash. Soaps are a huge part of our culture and these results show the storylines are remembered years after they are first screened."

Other Coronation Street storylines to feature in the top 20 include Tyrone suffering domestic abuse at the hands of partner Kirsty and Mike Baldwin dying in rival Ken Barlow's arms on the cobbles.

I haven't watched Eastenders for 20 years so have no idea who Kat or Zoe are. But seriously, a "Luke, I am your father" hackneyed storyline came in first? Enlighten me here, good people.

'you're not my mother!!'
'yes i am!!'

how can that be the best? of course they both grew uр together like sisters and the realisation that your so-called sister is in fact your mother was dramatic, but the best ever? the waterbed scene with reg and maureen was better! :)
