Cheryl's the girl most women would kiss

CHART-TOPPING star Cheryl Cole is the female celebrity with whom most straight women would like to share a kiss.

The singer topped a poll of 2,000 women, finishing narrowly ahead of Angelina Jolie.

The poll - to mark today's DVD release of the second series of lesbian television drama Lip Service - also found that more than half (51pc) of those in the survey had actually kissed a girl.

Almost two-fifths said it was because they were drunk, while a quarter claimed they were simply curious.

Kate Middleton proved to be a popular choice for a girl-on-girl kiss, taking third spot in the survey.

She finished ahead of raunchy pop star Rihanna.
