It's official, Selena Gomez is the most popular celeb on the planet! According to Instagram Gomez is number one for 2017 and you'll never guess who else made the list

America's singing and acting sweetheart, Selena Gomez is officially the most popular person the planet - if you believe Instagram stats (we do). The social media photo-sharing app has released their 2017 data and Gomez is the number one followed celeb on the planet.

Which makes sense, the stunning brunette-turned-blonde rose to fame on the wholesome Disney show Wizards of Waverly Place and hasn't put a foot wrong ever since. Beloved by fans and those close to her (her best friend donated a kidney to Gomez earlier this year, you don't do that for someone you don't like), this pint-sized beauty deserves the title slot.

However, the rest of top ten is an eye-opener - number two is not at all expected (our money was on a Kardashian or Jenner) and which Kardashian/Jenner sister scored the most popular slot on the list is going to cause high drama on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
