Sussex glamour model Jordan is the public's number one choice to replace David Blaine in his plastic box.

The illusionist intends spending 44 days and nights suspended above the River Thames in the capsule without food.

However more than a quarter of people surveyed wanted busty Jordan substituted for him in the stunt.

The second choice among the 1,000 people questioned for internet search site Yahoo! was Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Third place went to television's Mr Nasty Simon Cowell, whose mother lives in Rottingdean.

Cowell's protg, Gareth Gates, who admitted sleeping with Jordan earlier this year, was also nominated.

Frazer Lee, of Yahoo! Search, said: "It seems Britain's love for public humiliation and pillory from the 17th Century is still very much alive."
