Ever wondered what the nation's happiest cat looks like?! Well thanks to Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding, we all now have a pretty good idea.

Last month, Sarah was spotted seeking out the UK's happiest cat and now her handpicked winner has finally been revealed.

Introducing the champ... Lucius!

Isn't he a sweetie!

Not only is his furry white coat just oh-so-gorgeous, Lucius also has one killer of a smile. Just check out his grin!

Thanks to his smiley nature, Lucius championed over 100 other kitty cats who auditioned in the UK's first ever 'cat casting' and now he will be the feline face fronting O2's new Refresh campaign.

The two-year-old cat from Northampton managed to melt the hearts of Sarah and the rest of the judging panel by flashing that winning smile of his. Although Sarah admits Lucius' uncanny resemblance to David Bowie (can you see it?) kind of sealed the deal for her.

The cat version of David Bowie or not, we think they've picked a good'un in Lucius. And he deserves all the praise now coming his way after having a tough time recently.

Lucius sadly suffered from a road accident two-months-ago, but proving he's a little fighter, he's managed to turn his frown completely upside down and we love him for that.

Speaking about their adorable pet, Lucius' owner Jess Revitt has said: "Just two months ago Lucius was run over and nearly died. We thought he'd never smile again.

"Now, after a miraculous recovery our beautiful cat will be famous in an O2 Refresh advert and using his smile to cheer up the nation. I couldn't be more proud of my best friend."


The revolutionary O2 Refresh tariff transforms the way people buy mobile phones by separating the cost of their phone from the cost of their minutes, texts and data.To find out more, visit
