Pop star Kylie Minogue has been named the most inspirational celebrity of 2006 by British teenagers.
The SPINNING AROUND star secured the accolade, awarded by British teen magazine Sugar, after successfully battling breast cancer and resuming her Showgirl tour just 18 months after her diagnosis.
Sugar editor ANNABEL BROG says, "Kylie couldn't be any more inspirational. She's friendly, gorgeous, talented - and this year she's shown just how strong she is too."
Other inspirational celebrities rated in the poll included Christina Aguilera, Hilary Duff, Lily Allen and Britney Spears.
