WHICHEVER decade you were a teenager in, chances are there was at least one celebrity you idolised – or at least lusted after.

Today we’re asking who your main teen idol was. Whether it was a pin-up figure, sporting hero, pop singer or film star, whose posters took up the most space on your bedroom walls and who made you giddy whenever you saw them on TV or in magazines?

Fortunately I never got too embarrassingly carried away with it, but Kylie Minogue was my favourite as a teenager during the late 1980s.

Whether it was last week or last century, have a think back to your teenage days and share with us who your number one heart-throb was. Add your comments below, saying who it was and what made you swoon over them.
