London (ANI): Kylie Minogue has topped a list of the women with moolah whom British men would most love to date. The sexy Aussie singer, worth a whopping 40 million pounds, took 49 percent of the votes in a recent poll of 1,000 British singles by online dating firm Parship. Coming in second place on the list was author of the 'Harry Potter' series JK Rowling with 23 percent of the votes.
Minogue comfortably beat Rowling to take top spot even though the latter, with a fortune of 560 million pounds, is far richer than her. Third place on the list went to music icon Madonna, currently married to Brit director Guy Ritchies. Mum-of-three Madge, worth 300 million pounds, took in 12 percent of the votes. Supermodel Kate Moss and author Jackie Collins, who came in fourth and fifth place with 13 percent and 5 percent of the votes respectively, rounded off the top five.
Dr Victoria Lukats, psychiatrist and Parship's dating expert, commented: "The UK really is not a nation of gold diggers. Indeed, many people still consider it bad taste to talk about money. Surveys asking people what they find attractive in others have shown that personality factors and looks are cited as being far more important than wealth by the vast majority of people."
"These poll results appear to highlight this rather than the favourites simply being the richest on the list, the rankings were probably influenced more by perceived personal qualities kindness, sense of humour, passion, ambition, enthusiasm, likeability, charisma and talent as well as looks and style."
The list for the top six Men's Romantic Rich List as per Parship is:
1. Kylie Minogue (40m pounds)
2. J.K. Rowling (560m pounds)
3. Madonna (300m pounds)
4. Kate Moss (40m pounds)
5. Jackie Collins (90m pounds)
6. The Queen (320m pounds)
