The ‘wrong Miss Universe’ blunder at last year’s tournament has been named the most memorable reality TV moment of all time.

The epic fail was witnessed by a TV audience of 7.6million and went viral on social media.

Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez was crowned for a full two minutes before host Steve Harvey confirmed the error and called for the crown to be handed over to real winner, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of the Philippines.

Presenter Gillian McKeith claimed second place in the memorable moments countdown for her Bushtucker ‘faint’ on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! 2010.

The famous nutritionist collapsed during a live broadcast in front of shocked hosts Ant and Dec and had to receive medical attention, leaving camp-mate Linford Christie to complete the trial in her place.

Lady Colin Campbell’s outburst on I’m a Celeb 2015 completes the top three, after tempers flared between the socialite and multi-millionaire Duncan Bannatyne over a tin of tomato soup.

The study, which polled 2,000 reality TV fans, also revealed Strictly Come Dancing as the most popular reality TV show, followed by The Apprentice.

While recent reality TV moments dominate the top spots in the countdown, unforgettable scenes from earlier series also appear on the list.

Nasty Nick’s scheming and deception in the first Big Brother house left a lasting impression, while Will Young’s victory over Gareth Gates in 2002 finale of Pop Idol is still seen as the definitive moment of the singing show.
