Kristen Bell, Lena Dunham and Kate Moss most in-demand charity ambassadors

Charities often look to the stars to promote good causes, and this year actress Kristen Bell has been named the most sought after patron.

Having pipped Kate Moss and Stephen Fry to the post, the Frozen star has fronted more charity campaigns in 2015 than any of her peers, according to data from A-list profiling platform Celebrity Intelligence.

The tool monitors brand partnership deals year-round, and the research was collated using data from 50,000 celebrity profiles.

From Vivienne Westwood to Ricky Gervais, scroll down to see who else made it on to the list.

She used her Frozen powers to help raise money for non-profit organisation Chrysalis back in July, and has fronted campaigns for a number of charities this year including the Alliance of Moms, #Down2Adopt, Rotary and For Our Oceans.
