A recent survey found six in 10 adults feel nostalgic about the 90s, and the results show television is the aspect people miss most about the decade along with Walkman’s, VHS tapes and video rental shops.

Friends, early episodes of The Simpson and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air received the most mentions while Titanic was the movie people reminisce about the most.

Music was also a great influence for three in 10 adults, with the Spice Girls, Take That, Oasis and Westlife among those artists most fondly remembered.

Others loved the fashion trends of the decade, including double denim, low rise jeans, and choker necklaces— and surprisingly, Snake on the phone, Tamagotchis, and Power Rangers also made the cut.

A spokesperson for Myprotein, which commissioned the research said: "There has been a resurgence of 90s trends recently, to both the delight and dismay of people that grew up in that decade. It was a period of outrageous fashion and fun sports like skateboarding or rollerblading that has served as inspiration for the younger generation over the past year. And with the recent comebacks of famous musicians and actors from the decade, this nostalgic trend looks to continue for some time."
