The Daily Mail:

The humble cat has beaten off competition from robots, a guitar and a helicopter to become the newest token on the Monopoly board - but the iron is being axed.

Millions of Monopoly fans worldwide voted on Facebook after the manufacturer launched its first public poll to choose which of the eight tokens to ditch, and what to replace it with.

The iron, which has featured in the game since the 1930s, secured just 8 per cent of a vote and will now be removed.

But the cat, regarded as a dead cert to win because of their huge popularity online, came top with 31 per cent of the poll. Facebook Fark Furl
