A new study by fitness platform StriveClub has found the 'Britain's Got Talent' judge is the most inspirational celebrity, followed by TV presenter Clare Balding and comedian John Bishop.

Martin Randolph, founder of StriveClub, said: ''It's easy to get wrapped up in the world of celebrity footballers and Olympic gold medallists, but for the majority of us these aren't attainable sources of fitness inspiration, or fitspiration as it is now known.

''We wanted to find out which celebrities the nation really look to for motivation when keeping fit and the top 10 is testament to the belief that you don't have to look a certain way to be a healthy-living inspiration.''

StriveClub is available online via desktop and mobile with the app set to launch this summer.
