Website handbag.com has published the results of a poll conducted by Kellogg's All-Bran 5 Day Challenge to determine which female stars are absolutely 'abulous -- here are the top 20!

A survey held in the UK has revealed which famous faces (or figures, in this case) rate highest when it comes to taut tummies.

Breakfast cereal Kellogg's All-Bran 5 Day Challenge polled 2,000 respondents to establish an order than includes everyone from yummy mummy Miranda Kerr to reality star and model Kendall Jenner -- take a look!

In the following pages we bring you the most inspirational female celebrity midriffs.

1. Gwen Stefani

By her own admission, the No Doubt singer's toned stomach is the result of a grueling workout regime and it seems to have paid off bigtime -- at 43, after having given birth to two children, Stefani still takes the crown.
