In fact Billie only made it so far as the Bottom 10 - but the poll was notable for an absence of Voyage of the Damned's Kylie Minogue in the Top 100, especially since her sister Danii made it: 91: Christine Bleakley 92: Billie Piper 93: Ellen Page 94: Evangeline Lilly 95: Rachel Riley 96: Gemma Bissix 97: Dannii Minogue »
