Pippa Middleton is one of the celebrities that Britons would like to see replace Charles Darwin on the back of the 10-pound note, according to a new survey.

A quarter of people voted for Pippa, who topped Lord Alan Sugar and Keira Knightly to the coveted spot.

Those surveyed felt that it was time for a change, as a whopping 70 percent of Brits didn''t know who was on the back of the note.

“Even though we use them daily, it would appear most of us pay little attention to the symbols and faces on our currency,” The Sun quoted Patrick Coxen, spokesperson for T-Mobile PAYG - who commissioned the survey – as saying.

“However it seems there's definitely an appetite to get for more from a tenner, with the UK identifying Lord Sugar and Pippa Middleton as the faces they'd like to see on the reverse of a 10 pounds note - over more traditional historical figures of old,” he added.
