George Michael has come out on top of Smooth's Favourite Love Songs poll for 2019, with 'Careless Whisper' being voted the number one love song ever.

The late Wham! legend also finished in second place with 'A Different Corner', meaning that the songs were reversed from last year's vote.

Over 27,000 votes came in for the annual poll, which Smooth Radio counted down on Valentine's Day. Elvis Presley came third with 'Always on My Mind', followed by Bryan Adams with 'Everything I Do (I Do It For You)' and Aerosmith's 'I Don't Want to Miss a Thing'.
