According to a YouGov poll, fans of The Fab Four prefer Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band instead.

Today marks 50 years since The Beatles' White Album was released on 22 November 1968.

But according to a YouGov poll, the seminal record is not the most favoured among fans of The Fab Four.

It is in fact the band's 1967 classic album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band which was favoured by 25% of Beatles fans surveyed.

In fact, the poll showed that The White Album was the favourite of only 8% people, making it the third most popular overall.

Second place went to A Hard Day's Night with 10% of the vote.
