Joss Stone has been named young person of the year by publishers of Debrett's, a book which lists what it sees as the UK's top achievers.
Stone was marked out for her impact on international music
The 18-year-old soul singer was marked out for her impact on the international music scene.
People of the year titles were also given to newsreader Sir Trevor McDonald and Live 8's Bob Geldof.
Other new names included TV presenters Ant and Dec and actors Kenneth Branagh and Joanna Lumley.
But Victoria Beckham is the only former Spice Girl to still be included, with the other four removed this year.
Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm, Melanie Brown and Geri Halliwell have all been ousted from the list of 24,000 names of "significant individuals in British society".
Among other new entries were Dame Shirley Bassey, Stereophonics lead singer Kelly Jones and Robbie Williams' former songwriter partner Guy Chambers.
Actors Tim Roth and Pete Postlethwaite were also among the new acting names mentioned, alongside authors Tracey Chevalier, Andrea Levy and Louis de Bernieres.
Artists deemed worthy enough for this year's Debrett's were Scottish painter Jack Vettriano, Marc Quinn and Lucian Freud.
