In a recent survey conducted by Gala Bingo, Cheryl Cole was announced as the ‘Face of Lady Luck’. When Gala consulted the Nation on their thoughts and feelings on what Lady Luck would look like if she had a face, the Girls Aloud star came top of the poll with the lovely Holly Willoughby hot on her heels in second place.
Strangely, third place went to Susan Boyle with Strictly Come Dancing’s newest Judge, Alesha Dixon fourth and our favourite X Factor Essex girl, Stacey Soloman in fifth place. It doesn’t come as much of a surprise that the top 5 all had a smashing 2009 winning recognition nationwide, chart success and worldwide stardom in some cases.
Gala’s Lady Luck, Cheryl Cole saw her second victory in as many years on 2009’s X Factor when Joe McElderry won the ever popular reality show a few weeks ago and she’s also had massive success with her debut solo single become the fastest selling single of the year with over 290,000 copies sold.
Holly Willoughby fought off fierce competition from some of the Uk’s top TV presenters like Davina McCall and Fiona Philips to land the top spot on This Morning alongside Philip Schofield whilst Scottish star Susan Boyle was also a chart record breaker when her debut album became the best selling album ever in the UK chart. Alesha won us over despite all the harsh criticism as she took on the role of Judge on Saturday Night’s Strictly dancing show whilst Stacey Soloman reached the final of the X Factor.
All of these women had a fantastic 2009 and the similarities don’t end there as BBC3s top psychologist, Felix Economakis believes luck is based on PMA or Positive Mental Attitude to you and me. He said; “Undoubtedly all of the top 10 have a really positive mental attitude, which is a key component to inviting luck into your life. Having a positive mind set will enable you to keep an open mind, grab any opportunities should they arise and keep you looking on the bright side when bad things do happen. Therefore by adopting a positive approach we can all be luckier in 2010, regardless of our personal talents.”
Lesley Hall, Gala’s online PR Manager also added; “We know lots of our players rely on lucky charms and take inspiration from the likes of the celebrities who have topped our poll. We hope that by remaining or adopting a positive approach in 2010, Lady Luck will shine brightly on all our players and help them become one of our 500,000 monthly winners.”
