People Are Saying This Is The Best Television Moment Of The Decade
What makes a once-in-a-decade TV moment? It might be a sucker-punch of a one-liner, a slapstick-worthy fall, or a bum-clenching case of awkward miscommunication.
All those winning elements combine in a round-up of the 30 most iconic British TV moments of the decade (2010-2019) shared by journalist, pop culture writer and self-confessed trash TV addict Diyora Shadijanova.
The selection is pure, glittering comedy gold. And Twitter is genuinely ROFLing in the aisles.
Taking the crown (with 5.3K likes at the time of writing) is an EastEnders moment that took the internet by storm. Yep, Kat Slater's iconic, non-repentant admission to nun Sister Ruth: "I didn't become a little bit of a slag, I became a TOTAL slag."
There's plenty more where that came from, folks.
Coming in at number 5 is possibly the most excruciating moment of Love Island 2019, with Amy Hart screaming at a blank-faced Curtis, "I was coming back here to tell you that I loved you", after discovering her beau had been 'grafting' newcomer Jourdan.
Then there's number 8, Gemma Collins, fully decked out in her evening glam, falling in what feels like slow motion through the stage at the Radio 1 Teen Awards. We salute you, Gemma.
At 13, sheer Big Brother brilliance - the moment Tiffany Pollard lost her mind on CBB after she mistaking the news of David Bowie's death for that of housemate David Gest. Screaming.

Ranking 16, there's the most uncomfortable moment in Come Dine With Me history, with bitter loser Peter Marsh comparing winner Jane to a reversing dump truck, before muttering "what a sad little life". *Watches through fingers.
At 21, a slapstick treat, with ultimate hun Alison Hammond accidentally plunging an unlucky male assistant (dressed as a sailor, lol) into water while doing the weather map on This Morning. Cut to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield in hysterics.
We could go on - but the list is best read as it is. Expect laughing pains.
Seriously, thank you, Diyora Shadijanova. Thank you.
