Black Mirror: Bandersnatch took the world by absolute storm towards the end of last year. The anthology series helmed by Charlie Brooker took on a major project in the form of Bandersnatch, starring Dunkirk's Fionn Whitehead as main character Stefan Butler.

The film is a revolutionary concept - at certain points throughout, users are prompted to make a decision which will influence what happens next and, ultimately, the ending. The story followed game programmer Stefan, who creates a 'Choose your own adventure' game adapted from a book he loves - it's all very meta.

Of course, this means there are over a trillion different possibilities for the film, but there are only a handful of main outcomes - some of which are VERY dark indeed. Once you've finished the film, you're invited to go back and make different choices which will then eventually show you the different endings.

But many fans of the film have now become interested in whether they saw the same as everyone else, and how many people have seen the same as them. Which was the most popular ending that viewers saw, for example?

Thankfully, Netflix and the Black Mirror team have come to our aid, and released a few stats to satisfy our curiosity. According to the Netflix US Twitter account, 73% of watchers chose for Stefan to accept the job at Tuckersoft, and the NX on Netflix account revealed that of the five main endings, the one where Stefan gets on the train with his mum was the least viewed.

The Black Mirror profile revealed that the first choice - where Stefan can either have Frosties or Sugar Puffs for breakfast - saw people choose Frosties the most.

This comes after Netflix revealed that there was another ending that viewers may not have seen before. Although they didn't admit what happens, they did tell viewers how to get there by writing on Twitter, 'Think you've seen everything there is to see in Bandersnatch? Try picking up the family photo, twice.'
