Watch: Britain's Favourite Crisps revealed [Daily Mail]

TV viewers were left 'outraged', 'hurt' and 'frustrated' last night by a show dedicated to finding the country's favourite crisps.

Britain's Favourite Crisps aired on Channel 5 last night and sparked fury online as watchers branded the results 'absolutely sickening' and a 's***show'.

Dubbed 'a national disgrace', the programme ranked Walkers, Doritos and Pringles as the top three, leaving Monster Munch fans threatening to call Ofcom.  a close up of a logo: Channel 5 ranked Britain's favourite crisps in this pyramid formation, with Doritos, Pringles and Walkers dominating the list © Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited Channel 5 ranked Britain's favourite crisps in this pyramid formation, with Doritos, Pringles and Walkers dominating the list

Writing on Twitter, one watcher described the show's voters 'absolute filth' due to the fact that Space Raiders didn't make the cut.

Another asked: 'What sort of monster votes Pringles or Doritos as their favourite crisps?'

And @rachelpallett97 had similar concerns, tweeting: 'Joe's gone to bed p***ed off because French Fries weren't on the Nation's Favourite Crisps.'

Others were left questioning the state of popular culture itself given that two hours of airtime had been dedicated to the topic.

@AndyGilder said: 'Channel 5 devoting two hours to Britain's Favourite Crisps. Because if we're politically and morally bankrupt, we may as well be culturally bankrupt too.'

The very integrity of the show was called into question, as one viewer concluded that the only way that Monster Munch couldn't have made the top three was if the programme was 'making sh** up'.

Airing the day after about a million people marched in London to demand a 'People's Vote', snack-lovers were left demanding 'a second referendum' on crisps as they vented their anger online.

Jack Stirling wrote: 'Skips not even in the top 20. What's the actual point? Shows how f***ed democracy is in this country.'

The show's makers split the crisps that made the list into four tiers, with Walkers Pringles and Doritos landing in the prestigious 'God Tier'.

The second rung, confusingly called the 'Top Tier' featured McCoy's, Kettle, Tyrells and Sensations.

A 'Mid Tier' featured Hula Hoops, Monster Munch, Quavers, Wotsits and Chipsticks. The lowest rung, named 'Don't Come Anywhere Near Me With These', comprised Squares, Nik Naks and Salt n' Shake.

Also included in that tier was Mini Cheddars - which led some to brand the show inaccurate, because it is a baked snack. 

The programme will be repeated on Channel 5 at 11.10pm on Friday.
