Beyonce is women's choice in body poll

Singer Beyonce is the celebrity with the best body in the eyes of most women, but males prefer Hollywood actress Megan Fox, a new survey has found.

The singer topped a poll among females with 24pc of the vote, but one in five men stated Transformers star Fox boasted the sexiest body and named her as the woman they would most like to sleep with if their partner gave them a celebrity pass.

The poll of 2,000 people also revealed newlywed Katie Price was losing favour with the public with a third of men and women unanimously naming her as the least attractive celebrity.

Slim-figured Victoria Beckham did not fare well among those questioned, being voted the celebrity with the worst figure by both sexes.

The attractiveness study, conducted by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, found that as well as being women's overall body choice, Beyonce boasted the sexiest individual assets.

Approximately 34pc of men and women surveyed named her as the celebrity with the best bottom, while a quarter of respondents said she had the best legs.

Beyonce's bosom also topped among women, with 23pc saying she had the best celebrity cleavage. Hollywood siren Angelina Jolie and Fox shared first place among male voters in this category, both attracting 19pc.

Jennifer Aniston was head and shoulders above the field in the celebrity hair category, polling 35pc of all votes.
