Kate - who is married to Prince William - narrowly beat superstar beauties Rihanna and Beyonce Knowles, while curvy socialite Kim Kardashian came in fourth place.

The fifth star Britain would most like to see alongside Daniel Craig in the follow-up to new film 'Skyfall' is Cheryl Cole, who was just ahead of sultry actress Megan Fox.

British babe Kelly Brook came in seventh place, followed by a surprise entry from outspoken singer Jessie J.
