  Simpsons are fave TV family
Updated 28 August 2002, 13.40
The Simpsons
The Simpsons have been named Britain's top telly family.

They finished ahead of The Trotters from Only Fools and Horses and The Royle Family in the Radio Times poll.

But not everyone is happy about Homer and his family taking the title, even though more than 6,000 people voted.

A psychologist called Dr Cynthia McVey said: "In many ways, the Simpsons are a very poor example of family life: discipline, for example, never seems to happen."

She added that Homer and Marge often threaten to ground the kids when they misbehave, but never actually go through with the punishment.

Only one family made the top 10 from a soap, with Eastenders' screaming Slater sisters voted the sixth best family on TV.
