Kylie Minogue has been voted the most inspirational celebrity of 2006 by teenage girls.
The Aussie pop princess topped the poll in Sugar magazine after beating breast cancer and returning to the stage for her Showgirl tour.
“She’s a great role model and has inspired cancer patients to be strong and brave,” said one 14-year-old reader.
Sugar editor Annabel Brog said: “Kylie couldn’t be any more inspirational. She’s friendly, gorgeous, talented – and this year she’s shown just how strong she is too.”
Singer Christina Aguilera was second, followed by actress Hilary Duff.
Lily Allen was the highest-placed British star at number four.
Fifth was Charlotte Church, who said: “I’m really chuffed to be nominated.”
American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson was sixth while Britney Spears shot up to seventh place after dumping husband Kevin Federline.
Pink, Jordan and Coleen McLoughlin completed the top 10.
There was no place for last year’s winner Sienna Miller or runner-up Kerry Katona.
