A SURVEY carried out by independent research firm iReach Insights has found that more than 80 per cent of us would like to see another series of Love/Hate.
More men than women want to see Nidgey and the lads back. Only 76 per cent of women surveyed want to see the series return compared to 93 per cent of men.
iReach Insights MD Oisin Byrne, MD said: ’This just goes to show the phenomenal popularity of Love/Hate. Even though it looks like the main stars of the show are dead, with Nidge and Síobhan gunned down and Fran seemingly tortured to death in the season finale, we still want a sixth season.’
The survey covered many topics including who are people’s favourite characters and which characters they fancy.
Nidge proved the most popular character on the show with 30 per cent of those surveyed saying he was their favourite. Fran was the second most popular at 20 per cent and Síobhan came in third at 18 per cent.
One in five women admitted to having a crush on one of the Love/Hate characters. Despite the fact he has remained in a coma for the entire season, Tommy is a big hit with the ladies. Of those who admitted to having a crush on one of the characters, 50 per cent have a crush on Tommy. Darren came in second at 30 per cent with Elmo coming in third at ten per cent.
The survey also showed 52 per cent of Irish adults asked said they watched Love/Hate and 80 per cent of those watched all five seasons.
