Newlywed pop beauty Britney Spears has been voted the least hygienic pop star in a new online survey.

Music gossip site POPDIRT.COM asked chart fans to vote for stars they believe most need to clean up in a week-long poll, and 34 per cent plumped for Spears, after seeing recent photographs of her walking barefoot in a gas (petrol) station toilet.

Pop punk Pink followed in second place with 22 per cent of votes, after she was photographed urinating behind a car door, followed by DIRRTY star Christina Aguilera at third place with 14 per cent.

Canadian rock chick Avril Lavigne came fourth with nine per cent, followed closely by Nick Carter in fifth with seven per cent.
