London (ANI): Singer Cheryl Cole has topped a new poll of 'Positive Role Models For British Women'. The 'x factor' judge beat off competition from Harry Potter author JK Rowling, who took second place in the Mecca Bingo survey. Queen Elizabeth finished third in the top ten list of positive role models for women.
Last year, the same poll named Cole as the 'Worst Examples Set to British Women'. This year that dubious title goes to troubled singer Amy Winehouse. "It's interesting to see how much public opinion of Cheryl has changed," the Mirror quoted Lesly Hughes of Mecca Bingo, as saying.
