Prison Break and Narcos also feature in the top 10, while the highest-ranking British show on the list is The Inbetweeners, in seventh place.

The Crown, Peaky Blinders and Gavin And Stacey are other British representatives on the top-20 list which comes as Netflix revealed more than 90% of members who joined since October 2012 have binge-watched a series at least once.

It defines a binge as completing at least one series of a show within seven days of starting it.

The streaming service also revealed details of some of its biggest stars’ bingeing habits.

In a suggestive video, Ashton Kutcher and Jodie Foster join a number of other actors opening up about their first time watching television for hours on end.

“I gotta tell you my first time was great,” says Kutcher, while Mindhunter star Jonathan Groff adds: “It happened when I was 18 years old and I was on a bus.”

“It lasts for about six hours non stop,” says Orange Is The New Black actress Dascha Polanco - before Foster reveals the stars are discussing TV programmes.

“And I watched three seasons of Breaking Bad in three days,” Foster admits.
