Winnie the Pooh has been voted the nation's favourite animal character in a new survey, heading a list dominated by iconic bears like Paddington and Rupert.
Pooh, created by AA Milne, won 51 per cent of the vote in the survey, against Paddington's 41 per cent.
The Jungle Book's Baloo the bear was third with 32 per cent, just one point ahead of Black Beauty and two ahead of Rupert in fifth.
