A joke about the face of food and drink delivery service Amazon Prime Jeremy Clarkson and mulled wine was included in a list of the best new Christmas cracker jokes, according to a poll from television channel UKTV Gold.

The joke, which was voted the third funniest new joke, is: Why were Jeremy Clarkson’s colleagues excited to try his mulled wine? Because they’d been floored by his punch.

The joke pokes fun at Clarkson, who quit the BBC earlier this year after allegedly punching a producer on the programme Top Gear.

Just ahead of Clarkson in the list of funniest new jokes, were puns about former Labour leader Ed Miliband and Amazon.

The top joke was: Why does Ed Miliband like advent calendars? He gets to open the door to number 10.

It was followed by: I told my Granddad to go to Amazon for his Christmas shopping. He phoned me two days later from Brazil.

Here we feature the best food and drink jokes from the poll, as well as a selection of some classic Christmas cracker jokes.

The fourth funniest new joke involved a traditional Christmas turkey and the latest film hit Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

It was: How does Darth Vader like his Christmas turkey? On the dark side.
