While Simon Cowell and even Joanna Lumley have proved their power potential in Britain over the last year, it seems no one is rated quite so highly as Aussie songstress Kylie Minogue.
The pop princess has been voted the most powerful celebrity in the UK, following a survey from the general public.
Pipping David Beckham, Cheryl Cole and Jamie Oliver to the post, Kylie was one of two non Britons to make the top ten. George Clooney was the second.
In the same market research, Amy Winehouse, Jonathan Ross and John Terry were name poor role models.
