Rooney is celebrity we'd preserve

Wayne Rooney

England striker Wayne Rooney is the celeb we'd most like to keep for the future, a poll has discovered.

The survey asked 3,000 people who they'd most like to preserve, and the football star was followed in second place by singer Robbie Williams.

Comedian Peter Kay was in third, and Harry Potter author JK Rowling was in seventh place in the survey.

She was the only woman in the top ten, which didn't include any politicians or members of the royal family.

There were two sportsmen in the poll, but no footballers, as cricketer Freddie Flintoff and rugby star Jonny Wilkinson were at four and nine respectively.
