  Britain is officially the 'coolest country'
Updated 20 August 2003, 18.05
David Beckham
The UK has been voted the coolest country in the world, and it also has the coolest celeb and capital city.

An online survey of 350 18 to 30-year-olds decided that David Beckham was the grooviest celeb, and London was the best city.

Cameron Stout
Is Cameron uncool?
The survey was put together by the Brand Council, who keep an eye on everything that's considered cool.

But it seems that the people who took part were a bit confused.

They decided Victoria Beckham was not only the third coolest celeb but also the fourth least cool celeb!

Model Jordan was voted the least cool celeb of all, and the Big Brother contestants were third worst.

Cool oldies

Britain also had the coolest older celebs - actors Sean Connery and Judi Dench were the coolest over 50s man and woman.

But top brands went to foreign companies. The best car was the VW Beetle, MTV was the coolest TV channel and Sony makes the most popular household goods.
