Another Friday night, another bottle of cheap house plonk interspersed with some questionable (but eager) moves, and long, pizza-clad walk home from the pub with your mates. Sound familiar?
But what if your friends were the likes of Rihanna and Chezza Cole herself? VIP nights out, a cheeky strip club or two or even shaking some single-lady moves with Beyoncé… It couldn’t get any better – apparently.
Because a new survey celebrating the release of the new Panasonic Lumix XS1 says that whilst we're necking one too many Rioja’s with mates over the weekend, we're secretly wishing we were bopping the night away with Rihanna and Cheryl Cole (who topped the poll with 20.2% of the vote each), Beyonce, Lady Gaga and The Saturdays - in that order.

5. And then annihilate you on the dance floor. Again.
6. Because even if you’re owning the dance floor, you can always count on The Saturdays to turn up with some hot routine.
7. And you can bet you weren't on the email discussing outfit co-ordination.
8. Because you know that awkward moment when you realise that you're sort of, probably, the outsider in this particular group? Yeah, that.
9. Because you’re going to have to spend all night convincing Rihanna that, no, strip clubs are not cool.
And, no. JUST NO.
10. Because we don't want to be the friend on the other side of the camera when this happens.
11. Because at the end of the night, Cheryl Cole looks like this:
...while we’re looking like this:
