The UK's first survey of Jewish men and women and their views on which celebrity Jews they would like to date has been published.
British pop star Rachel Stevens and American actor David Schwimmer top a list of Jews who other Jewish men and women most fancy going out on a date with. Rachel Stevens beat off a host of other Jewish females including Caprice, Rachel Weisz and even The Apprentice's Alexa Tilley to be at the top of most Jewish men's lists.

7. Sophie Solomon (music)
8. Gwyneth Paltrow (movie actress)

10. Lisa Loeb (music)
"For years, Rachel Stevens has been at the top of many most eligible lists, so we can confirm that she is still there with members of her own community, while those re-runs of Friends starring David Schwimmer keep him in the public eye with female fans," said Eamonn Ozerovitch, co-founder of SomeoneJewish.com.
A student who attended the Hull University’s tour date reported that Rachel did indeed perform, and is trying to make a comeback with her music career.
Her set was approximately 45 minutes in length and included the popular tracks: Negotiate With Love, So Good, Some Girls, and Sweet Dreams My LA Ex. According to the student's review, Rachel also performed a couple songs that he had "never heard before." This could mean one of two things:
(1) Rachel has recorded new material and is previewing it at her University Tour gigs. Thus, she might be preparing for a third album release, in which case these songs he "never heard before" could all be brand new tracks, and one of them the brand new single. Either that or...
(2) She is simply performing album tracks from her second studio album, 'Come And Get It,' and he, having not heard the latest album, is not aware of their release and, therefore, is unfamiliar with her the material.
In conclusion, we really do not know if Rachel is performing new material or if it is just album tracks from her second studio recording 'Come And Get It.' So in reality, we have learned nothing, gained no real knowledge other than she might have performed new material, and that the lack of information received means it must have been a small gig.
However, we do have some additional information about the performances, crowd reaction, and her backup dancers:
According to Danny: "Her perfomance were ace. Some idiot in the crowd threw a glow stick at her, but she carried on regardless just like a true professional would. She made my night!"
She had four male backup dancers, and they did the ribbon dance that was first seen in the "Sweet Dreams My LA Ex" music video.

Barbados, Caribbean: British singer Rachel Stevens, who turned 28 earlier this month, has been on holiday in Barbados the last few days, spending time with her brand new boyfriend (unidentified as yet).
"They seemed rather intimate," said one onlooker.
The pop singer, Rachel, met him while looking for acting work in Los Angeles. There's no doubt she's smitten as she gets ready to plant a smacker on her new fella and snuggles up. A source close to the pair said:
"It's early days for them just yet... she met him while she was working in America [Los Angeles]."
