London - Lady Gaga has been hailed the world's best loved eccentric.

The Born This Way hitmaker who is known for her quirky outfits such as her meat dress and telephone hat, often odd behaviour and strangeness, has landed her the title.

The 26-year-old singer beat a host of famous names to top the poll of 2 000 people, including third placed rocker Ozzy Osbourne, fourth placed Prince Philip and Russell Brand, who came fifth.

'Eccentric attributes are harmless'

A spokesperson for Nature Valley, who conducted the survey as part of their new Sweet & Nutty bar launch, said: "British people tend to have a soft spot for anyone out of the norm - anyone who doesn't conform to the ordinary.

"This is why celebrities such as Prince Philip, Lady Gaga and Russell Brand are close to our hearts. More often than not, eccentric attributes are harmless as they are often have the most brilliant personalities."

Other stars to make the eccentric list include comedian-and-actor Stephen Fry, cross-dressing comic Eddie Izzard, Icelandic pop star Bjork, Hollywood megastar Johnny Depp and quirky couple Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton.
