Internet service provider TalkTalk has found the Famous Five to be the UK's favourite choice for bedtime stories.

Enid Blyton's popular adventure series topped the charts in the broadband provider's recent poll, which was conducted during January.

The firm carried out the survey after research suggested that fewer parents are now taking the time to send their children off to sleep by reading.

CS Lewis' classic The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe took second space in the chart, followed by Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales.

TalkTalk found that Roger Hargreaves' Mr Men collection still holds sway with infants, as does AA Milne's Winnie the Pooh and Beatrix Potter's The Tales of Peter Rabbit.

Completing the top ten were three more classics - The Wind in the Willows, Treasure Island and Peter Pan – plus the whizzpopping Roald Dahl favourite, The BFG.

For those wishing to read online before bed, TalkTalk is currently offering six-months half-price broadband to consumers signing up for its Essentials broadband package.
