Madbid.com, the UK’s leading internet auction website, today released survey results revealing who the public would most like to buy a date with at auction. Megan Fox pipped Cheryl Cole to top spot in the men’s poll with Susan Boyle close behind and even Gordon Brown squeezed into the women’s top ten!
The survey of over 1000 people supports the site’s forthcoming initiative to regularly auction off dates and engagements with celebrities with proceeds going to charity partner, We Are Macmillan. The flagship celebrity auction will be taking place in August followed by regular monthly auctions including a date with a famed actress, tennis with a grandslam superstar and dinner cooked by a celebrity chef to name just a few of the prizes up for grabs.
The survey generated great interest and revealed some surprising results. Megan Fox narrowly beat Cheryl Cole to the number one men’s favourite closely followed by Angelina Jolie and recently single part girl Katie Price. Cheryl’s X Factor rival Dannii Minogue received few votes but sister Kylie reached 8th position. It looks like age may have caught up with Jennifer Lopez as the recently turned 40 year old only scrapes in at number ten…beaten by BGT contestant Susan Boyle!
For the women, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and David Beckham were the familiar faces taking the top three spots respectively closely followed by old favourite George Clooney and surprise radio funnyman, Chris Moyles, stealing fifth place. Perhaps even more surprising is ladies’ man Russell Brand only squeezing in at number nine, only narrowly beating PM, Gordon Brown!
‘It just goes to show that fame and power can be powerful aphrodisiacs. Gordon Brown was definitely a surprise but he is one of the most powerful men in the country and it looks like Susan Boyle may not be on the market that long with this amount of popularity!’ Madbid.com Managing Director, Juha Koski continues, ‘At Madbid.com we are always trying to offer something unique to our customers. Hosting regular auctions with celebrities as prizes is an auction opportunity that you just can’t find anywhere else.
