Oprah Winfrey has been named and shamed as the greediest star on a new list which also features John Travolta, Will Smith, Madonna and SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS.

Oprah tops America's GLOBE tabloid list because she's "the queen of big spenders".

And the Globe claims her eight homes in America alone are cause enough to rocket her to the top of the greedy list, but the addition of her love for huge shopping sprees, fitted cashmere carpets and 24-carat gold showerheads give her the edge over her fellow celebrities.

Meanwhile, Julia Roberts, Lisa Marie Presley and Halle Berry are among the stars on the Globe's Cheapskates list.

Those on the greedy hit list are:

1. OPRAH WINFREY

2. Britney Spears

3. Elton John

4. JOHN TRAVOLTA

5. Mariah Carey

6. P DIDDY

7. MADONNA

8. Celine Dion

9. Jay Leno

10. WILL SMITH
