Being a 'celebrity' landed at the third with 14 per cent.

Only 13 per cent wanted to be teachers, 12 per cent doctors, 11 per cent lawyers and just eight per cent nurses.

"These days many young people are strongly influenced by the power of celebrity," The Sun quoted Alliance and Leicester bank spokesman Andy Muddimer, as saying.

"Thirty years ago the term would be reserved for the likes of seasoned actors or singers.

"But today many people are simply famous for being famous," he added.

The Top Ten most popular careers are:

1. Musician, singer, band member;

2. TV/other media

3. Celebrity

4. Fashion designer

5. Teacher

6. Doctor

7. Lawyer

8. Armed Forces

9. Journalist

10. Sportsman/woman
