Netflix’s The Crown, a controversial drama about the life of the royal family, came in fourth on the list of programs lied to.

The end of the list was the Emmy-winning sitcom Schitt’s Creek, in which the formerly stinky Rose family is returned to life in a ramshackle motel in a town they once bought as a joke.

Tim Glanfield, editor-in-chief of RadioTimes.com, said: “From the water cooler at work to dinner parties and pub tables across the country, the latest and greatest shows often dominate the conversation.

‘Our research shows how much we enjoy talking about TV.

“However, it’s a surprise to see how many of us aren’t completely honest about what we’ve seen.

With so much choice in a truly golden age of TV, it’s nearly impossible to see it all, so don’t be afraid to admit you’ve never tuned in.”
