And STILL the UK’s sexiest man…

Jeremy Clarkson has retained his crown as the ‘UK’s sexiest man’ following a poll of 2,000 women.

The poll was carried out by IllicitEncounters.com, which calls itself the “best online dating site for married people.”

The site gave its 2,000 female members a list of 50 culturally-relevant men from the last 12 months, and asked them to give the famous faces a score of 1-10 based on how sexy they found them.

And, for some bizarre reason, it was the former Top Gear host who came out on top, ending up with an overall score of 9/10.

He beat off competition from the likes of Prince William, Idris Elba and Cillian Murphy.

And if you’re sat there thinking this must be a fluke win or some sort of anomaly, then think again, because this is the second year running that the Diddly Squat Farm owner has claimed the crown.

The 64-year-old pipped Spider-Man star Tom Holland to top spot, with the Marvel actor earning a score of 8/10 to take second place.

Taking bronze was Prince William, who saw an impressive improvement on last year’s performance, when he finished near the bottom of the pile.

It looks like football fever is already gripping some as well, with Gareth Southgate finishing in fourth place. Clearly the waist coast is working its magic.

Oscar-winning actor Cillian Murphy was in fifth, followed by Luther star Idris Elba and presenter extraordinaire Dermot O’Leary.

And the top 10 was rounded out by two names who have shot to stardom in the last 12 months – I’m A Celeb winner Sam Campbell and running addict Russ ‘The Hardest Geezer’ Cook.

With some surprise names near the top, there are inevitably some shock names near the bottom.

Ryan Reynolds, one of the Hollywood – and Wrexham’s – biggest stars sunk like a stone to 26th place, having been in fourth last year.

Meanwhile, last year’s bronze medallist Mike Tindall found himself down in 29th, and Piers Morgan plummeted from 17th to 40th.

A poll to prove beyond doubt that beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder.
