Ade Edmondson has slammed soaps for their "unpleasant" portrayal of British people.

The Young Ones legend described the UK serials as "selfish" and "aggressive".

The 55-year-old told Reader's Digest: "Can someone tell me what's wrong with a bit of feel-good telly?

"Haven't we got enough selfish, aggressive programmes? The soaps are full of unpleasant people.

"If you watched an average week of British TV, you'd come away thinking we're a nation of murderous, drink-driving, egotistical con-artists.

"I'm sorry, but this country's not like that. The vast majority of us are decent, funny and friendly."
