Radio Times asked 1,200 teenagers who were the stars they most looked up to, from a list of both mainstream media personalities and online stars.


The teens were then asked to rate each celeb based on six key attributes, including how 'consistently brilliant' they considered them to be.

Multiple Olympic champion Usain Bolt came out top in this category, and that was even before he won his seventh gold medal in Rio this weekend. He easily topped the list ahead of Professor Brian Cox and Harry Potter creator JK Rowling.
