During the period between 15th October and 10th November 2004, members of the BTTB forum voted for who they thought was the best ever Home and Away character. They were asked to list the five characters that they thought were the best, 1st being the character they thought was the best and 5th to the character that they thought was the fifth best. 1st place was given five points, 2nd four, 3rd three, 4th two and finally 5th one point.
Over the past 3 weeks, we've been compiling the results and now it's time for the winners to be revealed. Over the next week we'll be counting down from 68 to 1, and the countdown starts here. Click on one of the numbers below for more information on the characters who won.
Up until the last few days I would be here making a speech going how close it had finished between Kane and Irene. In fact Kane was in the lead for most of the voting. However, a late surge by Irene, and Kane drawing lots of zeroes made it pretty clear cut in the end.
An interesting fact to notice is that you have to go down to Angel in 20th position before you find anyone that hasn't made an appearance this century. However several full-time characters this year never got a mention such as Rhys, Dan and Henry. Around 100 people voted and between them they chose 68 different characters.
