Is this your ideal woman? She has Katherine Jenkins's hair and Samantha Cameron's nose...


This is the face of Britain's ideal woman, according to a bizarre new survey.

She has Nicole Scherzinger's eyes, Katherine Jenkins's hair and Samantha Cameron's nose.

Some 1,000 men and 1,000 women were asked what they most admired about the bodies of various celebrities.

For the ideal woman, those surveyed admired the toned stomach of Olympian Jessica Ennis, singer Scherzinger's eyes, Jenkins' hair, and the curvy figures of Kelly Brook and Beyonce.

The ideal man would have Ryan Gosling's smile, Brad Pitt's rugged jawline, Daniel Craig's eyes, plus the body of sports professionals David Beckham and Jenson Button.

The survey was commissioned by supermarket chain Morrisons to understand better how customers think about their health and fitness as part of the launch of its NuMe range of healthier food.

Surprise inclusions in the list were Prince Harry's body and Samantha Cameron's nose.

The survey revealed that people are working hard on their own bodies, with 46 per cent stating they would always strive to keep improving their health and fitness, while only one in five claimed they were not currently happy with their body shape.

To help confidence, 61 per cent said starting a healthy eating regime would give an instant boost, while 27 per cent said avoiding chocolate would be the thing that made them feel better about their figures.

Some 30 per cent said going to the gym was their quick fix to feeling healthier, while 13% said a shopping trip would have the same effect.

Nutritionist for Morrisons NuMe, Bryonie Holleart, said the findings provided a window into the 'quick-fix' nature of people's eating habits today.

She said: "While we all want to look like a celebrity, we know getting that perfect body requires hard work - both in the gym and in the kitchen.

"It's clear too that many people will give up their best intentions, often because it's hard to keep cooking healthy meals, maintain an expensive diet plan, all while putting in hours in on the treadmill.

"Often though, just making a few, small, simple changes to your lifestyle can have a big effect.

"That's why a range like Morrisons NuMe can provide a helping hand, offering healthier versions of all your favourite foods with lower calories and added nutritional benefits."
