Kristen Stewart’s Twilight character, Bella Swan, beats Marge Simpson as she is named favourite movie mum!

Kristen Stewart's character in the Twilight saga, Bella Swan, has been voted Britain's Favourite Movie Mum.

The Twilight character played by the 22-year-old actress has topped an Empire poll of the nation's favourite cinematic mothers. She beat Marge Simpson and Meryl Streep's Mamma Mia! character. How can a vampire mum beat that beautiful, blue-haired, Marge?!

Actually, we get it Marge, wouldn't want to mess with those vampire gnashers either!

Bella and her vampire lover Edward Cullen, played by Kristen's on/off boyfriend Robert Pattinson, welcomed daughter Renesmee in last year's final instalment of the supernatural franchise, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II.

Reportedly the strong-willed character's maternal instinct struck a chord with movie fans, earning 89 per cent of the vote.

Jon Nutton, marking director for Empire Cinemas, told ContactMusic, ''Our customers' opinions are incredibly important to us and we wanted to give them a chance to vote for their favourite movie mum. Cinema goers have chosen three very different but equally amazing characters in film to top the poll.''

Meanwhile, beloved animated character Marge Simpson was voted Funniest Movie Mum in the poll after making her big screen debut in 2007's The Simpsons Movie. The mother-of-three beat Meryl Streep's Donna in Mamma Mia! and John Travolta's cross-dressing role as Edna Turnblad in Hairspray.

American Pie film cougar, aka Stifler's mum, played by Jennifer Coolidge, was named Most Embarrassing Movie Mum in the poll beating Marge and Donna.
