In total, the poll attracted more than 3,000 votes, which were split fairly evenly among the 19 options, with the Emma Roberts-starring movie coming out on top by scoring 12 per cent.

The 2018 Vanessa Hudgens favourite The Princess Switch (which this year spawned a sequel The Princess Switch: Switched Again) took second place in the poll, while the top three was rounded out by Holiday in the Wild, a 2019 Zambia-set romcom starring Rob Lowe.

Other movies with an impressive showing in the final results include El Camino Christmas and Let it Snow, which came in fourth and fifth place.

Interestingly, some of the streamer’s more critically acclaimed festive films fared less well in the poll – with the Academy Award-winning animation Klaus managing just three per cent of the vote, only just scraping into the top 10.

  1. Holidate – 12 per cent
