David and Victoria Beckham and their three young sons have been named the "best representation" of the modern family in a survey published today.
The Beckhams polled 29% of the vote as best representing the modern family - narrowly beating Homer, Bart and the other Simpsons by 1% to the title.
The online poll showed actress Kate Winslet and broadcaster Davina McCall as the top role models as mothers with 38% and 33% of the vote respectively.
Former glamour model Katie Price secured only 2% of the vote, alongside model Kate Moss and former Atomic Kitten Kerry Katona.
Price's ex-husband Peter Andre was voted best role model as a father at 29.1%, fighting off competition from David Beckham, who polled 20.9% and Brad Pitt at 16.2%.
The findings from a poll of 3,000 UK adults carried out last month were released by Sky1 to mark the launch of the US sitcom Modern Family tonight on Sky1 and Sky1 HD.
