London, Apr 28 (ANI): Be it fashion or food, Britons are still stuck in a 1980s time warp-they have been digging out their shoulder pads and snacking on Arctic roll, a survey has evealed.

They still long for food, telly, music, clothes and films, which belonged to the huge hair decade.

The survey for M and S Money found ice-cream dessert Wall's Viennetta, telly hit Blackadder, time travel movie Back To The Future and the synthesiser pop pair Eurythmics are still much-loved.

In fact, the obsession with the 80s could be gauged by the fact that one in 10 of Britons have even kept hold of their videocassette recorders.

Over three-quarters of women wear styles such as hoop earrings and leg-warmers from the decade.

The research found that the favourite show from the era was 'Blackadder', closely followed by 'Only Fools and Horses' and 'Blind Date'.

And the nation's favourite tune from the decade was 'There Must Be An Angel', by Eurythmics, followed by Foreigner's 'I Want To Know What Love Is' and Duran Duran's 'A View To A Kill'.

"Many elements of 80s culture have lasted the test of time," the Daily Star quoted M and S Money boss Colin Kersley as saying.

"People are keeping the 80s alive by holding on to fashions, entertainment and household favourites.

"While life has moved on over the last 25 years, people are obviously still attached to the things that mean something to them - whether that's a favourite jacket or a record player that still works perfectly.

"My personal favourite from the 80s is the first series of Blackadder, which I have on video and will keep for ever - even though I no longer own a video player!" he added. (ANI)
