Who'd be your ideal teacher?

L-R: Cherul Cole, David Tennant and Miley Cyrus

Loads of you think school would be much more fun if Cheryl Cole was your teacher, according to new research.

Two thousands six to 18-year-olds were asked who'd be their ideal teacher and the singer and X Factor judge came out on top.

Former Doctor Who star David Tennant and Hannah Montana's Miley Cyrus came second and third. But who would you choose?

Would you want someone who's brainy, someone who's glamorous, or maybe just someone who makes you laugh? And what subjects would you want them to teach you?

Unfortunately this topic is now closed but there are Comments pages on other subjects on the main Chat index.
