Holly Hunter's stretchy animated character in The Incredibles has beaten Harry Potter's mother Lily to the top of a new movie mums poll.

Elastigirl, voiced by Hunter, topped the U.K. Mother's Day list of mums, as chosen by visitors to online movie rental and streaming service LoveFilm.

Meryl Streep's Mamma Mia! character, Donna Sheridan, came in third ahead of Forrest Gump's mum, played by Sally Field, and Morticia Addams from The Addams Family.
