Toxic and Go Girl magazines polled 1,800 children in the UK aged 7 to 12 to find out their hopes and dreams for the future.

They discovered that one in three boys view being rich as their main aim when growing up. Girls on the other hand seemed to prefer fame – 21 percent said their top goal was to be famous when they grow up.

15 percent saying they aim to earn their way to the top and be successful in the workplace.

And for all these ambitious children, famous business people such as Lord Alan Sugar and Simon Cowell were among the celebrities voted as the kids’ top role models.
