'Mary Poppins' is most watched Christmas movie

Monday December 3, 2012

Although it's often the subject of ridicule because of Dick Van Dyke's humorous mockney accent, Mary Poppins has been picked by British TV viewers as the most watched film at Christmas.

A survey found the average Brit has watched the Julie Andrews film eight times over the festive period. 

And the singer was victorious once more as The Sound Of Music also came top of the charts, closely followed by Wizard Of Oz and Home Alone - which are watched seven times on average.

Strictly Come Dancing star Denise Van Outen, who is fronting the company's Christmas campaign, said: "It's no surprise to hear that we'll be tuning in to our family favourites once again - for me Christmas just wouldn't be the same without Mary Poppins. Having missed so much TV recently with rehearsals, I'll definitely be taking charge of the remote control this Christmas."
