Pete Doherty was also voted a hero in the poll
Amy Winehouse has been voted the ultimate heroine among the UK’s youth.
A new poll of people under 25 conducted by Sky.com found that the singer was rated above Princess Diana in the top heroine category.
Psychologist Donna Dawson told PA that Winehouse may have topped the poll because she “seems to portray a certain sense of vulnerability or having had to fight against some adversity in their lives”.
Among the general population, with categories not restricted by gender or age, Winston Churchill was voted top hero figure. Elvis Presley came second.
