Model and Transformers star Rosie drops down to 18th place from top of the list in 2011.



"I'm proud of me and I am who I am. I know that I'm Marmite and I wouldn't want to be anything less or anything more, I'm just myself," Tulisa said.



"This is an award that will stay on the mantelpiece probably for the rest of my life."
