Cheryl Cole has been adjudged to have the UK's 'ultimate fantasy body', according to a new survey.

The Girls Aloud star's figure was named by 15 per cent of respondents in a poll commissioned by slimming aid Zotrim to have the best body in Britain.

Cole has just been appointed to the judging panel of ITV1 talent show The X Factor, replacing Sharon Osbourne, and will be sitting alongside another celebrity whose body was lauded in the poll carried out by YouGov.

Dannii Minogue, who is rumoured to have resorted to plastic surgery in a bid to outshine her younger counterpart, garnered 11 per cent of the vote, the same proportion as television chef Nigella Lawson.

Spice Girl Mel B, who recently appeared on US show Dancing With The Stars, was named by nine per cent of respondents as having the best body while Madonna and Lily Allen also featured.

The UK's ultimate fantasy bodies are:

Cheryl Cole – 15 per cent
Dannii Minogue – 11 per cent
Nigella Lawson – 11 per cent
Mel B – Nine per cent
Madonna – Five per cent
Lily Allen – Two per cent
