Inspirational Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole has been voted the Most Inspirational Woman of the Decade.

The 'Fight for This Love' singer - who has been focusing on her solo career since she separated from her soccer star spouse Ashley Cole last month following claims he cheated on her several times - was named as the celebrity female who has made the biggest impression on other women.

The 26-year-old pop star was given the honour for both her "beauty" and "success" - with 29 per cent of her fans praising her looks and 51 per cent in awe of her career.

A survey taken out on the cosmetic treatment review website, www.goodsurgeonguide.co.uk asked over 1,100 British women their views on a number of the world's biggest celebrities.

Actress Dame Helen Mirren polled second, chat show host Oprah Winfrey was placed third and Jennifer Aniston came fourth while Britain's Queen Elizabeth was surprisingly named the sixth most inspirational woman.

Katie Piper, the model who survived a horrifying acid attack, was named fifth in the list.

Author J. K. Rowling, TV personality Sharon Osbourne, singer Kylie Minogue and sportswoman Amy Williams - who took gold in the skeleton competition at the Winter Olympics - completed the top 10.

Christiana Clogg, owner of The Good Surgeon Guide, said: "It is great that the results show these women as inspirational for a variety of reasons. Success is something that most women aspire to have, not necessarily success in the public eye, but success on a personal level."

The survey also asked the same group of females about who has made the least impression on them over the past 10 years.

Model-turned-body builder Jodie Marsh has topped this list, followed by a number of British stars, including Tara Palmer Tomkinson, reality TV stars Chantelle Houghton and Kerry Katona, Rebecca Loos - who claimed to have had an affair with soccer star David Beckham - and actress Helen Flanagan.
