After GOLD's sneak behind the Royle's sofa, uncovering unseen material and revelations about how the sitcom and characters were conceived, it's time to hand over to the cast and the legion of celebrity fans to pick the bits they hold with highest esteem.

Not only will the cast and celebrity fans - like Catherine Tate, Paul Whitehouse, Jimmy McGovern and John Prescott - pick their favourite Royle moments, but creators, writers and stars of the show Caroline Aherne and Craig Cash will also pick their all time, top ten personal highlights and talk us through what each moment meant to them.

And what a canon of work to choose from! The Royle Family is chock full of great moments - from Jim's iconic catchphrase "My Arse!", to Joe's spontaneous singing and Denise's waters breaking - there are enough classic moments here to prove that The Royle Family is one of Britain's very best.

Jim: "Right, get your coat on Barb."
Barbara: "Are you taking me out then?"
Jim: "No, I'm gonna turn the fire off... of course I'm taking you! I wouldn't leave you here on me birthday, would I? ... Better bring your purse."
