Curvy Kelly Brook is the woman we would most like to see on the catwalk, according to a new survey.

As the debate over size zero models rages on, a poll revealed that the majority of peoople would prefer to see fashions modelled by fuller figured celebrities.

Brook, famed for her voluptuous curves, was top choice.

Actress Kate Winslet came second, followed by Charlotte Church and Coleen McLoughlin.

Ultra-skinny Victoria Beckham was bottom of the poll.

Original supermodel Cindy Crawford was fifth, just ahead of TV chef Nigella Lawson. Doctor Who star Billie Piper also made the top 10.

Skinny stars still have their admirers - Kate Moss was seventh while super-slim Keira Knightley was ninth.

The survey of 1,000 people was carried out by Yahoo! Entertainment. As Paris Fashion Week kicks off, the size zero debate shows no sign of going away.

It sparked an international outcry after bosses at Madrid Fashion Week banned models with a body mass index (BMI) of less than 18.

London Fashion Week chiefs refused to follow suit.
