But although she beat her sister Pippa in the list of the UK’s most admired celebrity beach bodies - thanks, it is thought, to leaked snaps of a bikini-clad Kate on her Seychelles honeymoon last year - her toned abs were not enough to take the crown from Beyonce, who was awarded the top spot. Despite Pippa’s appearance in thatbridesmaid dress at the royal wedding, which saw her gain numerous admirers and a Facebook page dedicated to her rear, her infamous bottom only landed her fourth place with 8.8 per cent of votes. Beyonce was placed first in a British survey of best bikini beach bodies, followed by Kate, with Pippa in joint fourth placeThe Duchess of Cambridge was placed second, thanks to leaked photographs of her on her honeymoon in the Seychelles last yearPippa Middleton was placed fourth in the survey, thanks to her infamous derriere +4 Fine form: Beyonce showing off the well-honed body that landed her top spot in a survey of the best celebrity bikini bodies The famous image of actress Helen Mirren in a red bikini has clearly left a lasting impression on the nation, with the 67-year-old appearing ahead (6.9 per cent) of Katy Perry (5.5 per cent), who is half her age. Yummy mummy Jessica Alba secured joint second with Kate (9.7 per cent) thanks to her toned physique, while singer Rihanna snatched sixth (7.9 per cent) - just behind Geordie lovely Cheryl Cole (8.8 per cent). Elle 'The Body' Macpherson proved she still has it as her supermodel prowess landed her joint sixth, while curvy Kim Kardashian came tenth (3.7 per cent) in the poll. It wasn't only the women that pollsters for Hotels.com were rating either. +4 David Beckham topped both the British and global beach body poll +4 Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo came third in the British poll and fifth in the global poll Despite being snubbed by Stuart Pearce recently, David Beckham can take solace in the fact he beat tight short-wearing Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo to the top spot - 21 per cent compared to 11 per cent. The infamous shot of James Bond star Daniel Craig coming out the sea in tight blue trunks in Casino Royale landed him second place (20 per cent), while Johnny Depp came fourth (10 per cent). Prince Harry displaying his crown jewels gained him ninth place (6.5 per cent) - ahead of permanently shirtless Matthew McConaughey (5.5 per cent). The poll also showed Wolverine star Hugh Jackman snatched fifth place (8.8 per cent) - beating Rafael Nadal (8.8 per cent), Brad Pitt (7.4 per cent) and Ryan Reynolds (6.5 per cent). The rest of the world seems to agree with Britain’s choice, as David Beckham came top of the global poll of 5,791 people with 23 per cent of votes - pipping Brad Pitt (13 per cent) and Channing Tatum (11 per cent) to the post. However, Jessica Alba tops it for the girls (16 per cent), followed closely by Beyonce (15 per cent) and the Duchess of Cambridge in third (5 per cent). Kate Hopcraft from Hotels.com said: “It’s great to see that the royal effect spreading around the world with Kate Middleton appearing in the global list of celebrity bikini bodies. 'I’m not surprised that David Beckham and Daniel Craig top the British list, I don’t think Britain would get tired of seeing pictures of those two in their trunks.'
