YESTERDAY we revealed our readers’ 20 sexiest female celebs – topped by Our Girl actress Michelle Keegan – and today it’s the lads’ turn. After we highlighted the many famous fellas called Tom last week, Sun readers followed it up by choosing several of them in our poll of your favourite hunks.
There’s Hardy, Hiddleston and Holland, and – this is not unusual – that legendary ladies’ man, Tom Jones. But Toms didn’t have it all their own way, with a Dick – Richard Madden – and a Harry (Styles) in there too. KATE JACKSON takes a look at your top 20 sexiest fellas . . .
1st Tom Hardy
WHETHER it’s his smouldering looks or posh, husky voice, when the Peaky Blinders actor read bedtime stories on children’s channel CBeebies, it was mums who were transfixed.
Dad-of-three and Oscar nominee Tom, 44, was tipped to be the next James Bond, but he is oblivious to his good looks, insisting: “I have pencil arms, dad flab and crooked teeth.”
2nd Daniel Craig
HE may have binned his 007 Speedos, but Sun readers still feel a strong Bond with the 53-year-old actor.
Daniel honed his physique for the role with cryotherapy – immersion in freezing cold chambers to improve blood flow.
3rd Tom Holland
THIS baby-faced Brit school actor plays Spider-Man’s latest incarnation.
Tom, 25, who is dating co-star Zendaya, says his Spidey suit hides his real, er, talents: “It makes you look small in all the areas you don’t want to look small.”
4th Sir Tom Jones
SEX Bomb singer Tom really is just that, having revealed he bedded up to 250 women a year at the height of his fame.
At 81, he says hanging upside down for two minutes a day, in what is called inversion therapy, keeps him sprightly.
5th Henry Cavill
JERSEY-born actor Henry, 38, is best known for playing Superman in four screen blockbusters.
He was bullied at school for being “chubby” but says: “Thank God people were such d***s to me at school, because it taught me an awful lot about people.”
6th Robbie Williams
DESPITE his swagger and his 18 Brit awards, the singer has suffered the psychological condition body dysmorphia.
But two years ago, the dad of four, who is now 47, said he was starting to like himself “a little bit more”.
7th Tom Hiddleston
HUNKY Tom, 40, says of training with a US navy seal and British Marines to play Marvel’s Loki: “It basically involved getting up at 4am to do all manner of running, jumping, lifting, pulling, pushing and then doing a day’s work filming.”
8th Mark Wright
HIS wife, Michelle Keegan, topped our Sexiest Women poll yesterday, so it only seems fair that the former Towie hunk should make the men’s top ten.
Mark, 34, says of his gym obsession: “You’ll definitely have a better sex life.”
9th Danny Dyer
YOU just can’t resist EastEnders’ professional Cockney geezer Danny Dyer.
But despite his appearance in our poll, Danny, 44, says: “I don’t get the sexiest man thing. I’ve got 18 chins, man boobs and I’m too hairy.”
10th Harry Styles
ONE Direction heart-throb Harry is completely comfortable with his feminine side and has no problem wearing flamboyant outfits and voluminous dresses.
Harry, 27, once said: “I wouldn’t consider myself sexy.” Millions disagree.
11th Joel Dommett
HIS six-pack impressed viewers when he peeled off on 2016’s I’m A Celebrity.
Joel, 36 – dubbed “Popeye” in the jungle – got into fitness while single, saying: “I thought, ‘I’ve got to shape up, to find a high calibre of person’.”
12th Sean Bean
THE Game Of Thrones star’s weathered face and gruff Sheffield accent sends fans wild but Sean, 62, has no time for vanity – he’s from Yorkshire, after all.
He says: “Even a regular guy has a six-pack now, and that’s not realistic to me.”
13th Richard Madden
SCOTSMAN Richard, 35, found TV fame as the brooding protection officer David Budd in 2018 BBC drama Bodyguard.
Even so, he says he looked like a “fat potato” at school and slimmed down for an early role as he felt self-conscious.
14th Jack Grealish
HOTTIE England winger Jack, 26, has plenty of tips for fellas to get their hair right, such as applying Moroccan smoothing oil when damp.
He adds: “When I’ve dried it with the hairdryer, I put hair bond in it, like a wax, to style it.”
15th Gethin Jones
WELSHMAN Gethin, host of BBC1 show Morning Live, is an avid gym-goer.
But the 43-year-old goes as much for his mind as his buff bod, telling fans: “Just try and find time for it. I find it so important for my mental health.”
16th Giovanni Pernice
STRICTLY’S Italian stallion dance pro is rumoured to have dated several of his partners on the show.
Giovanni, 31, recently joked that his looks are “2,000 out of ten” and says he’s ageing “like a fine wine”.
17th Ben Shephard
THE ever-youthful Good Morning Britain presenter is 47, has a degree in dance and puts himself through intense workouts inspired by the competitors on challenge show Ninja Warrior.
“Those guys are incredible,” he says.
18th Lewis Hamilton
FORMULA 1 hero Lewis, 36 – who came so close to winning a record eighth world title on Sunday – is known for his quirky clothing style.
He has said: “Fashion is my escape from the pressure of Formula 1.”
19th Gordon Ramsay
IN 2016 the sweary 55-year-old TV chef admitted he’d had his wrinkles lasered, saying: “The lines were pretty horrific, like Scarface, and I was never embarrassed by it but my children helped me become more paranoid about it.”
20th Gary Barlow
THE boyband singer ballooned to 17st after Take That split up in 1996 but then he set about transforming his diet and exercise regime.
Gary, 50, said: “I realised afterwards it was a form of depression.”
