Dannii Minogue: Aspirational?

The Telegraph says this, this morning:

While most television personalities are desperate to play up their "working class" credentials, Dannii Minogue is thrilled to have been named this week as a middle class icon.

"That's amazing," she said at a tea party at Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge to launch her Project D clothing range. "I'm a middle class hero. I will embrace that title."
The Telegraph doesn't say who or what gave her the title of middle class icon, and Dannii seems to have jumped to the conclusion that she's been called a hero. She could, just as easily, be a middle class icon amongst the upper classes, a warning in teeth and hair: "Don't lose all our money on the Qatari stock exchange, we don't want to end up all Dannii Minogue."
