Jeremy Clarkson has been voted the UK’s ‘sexiest man alive’.

Clarkson, 67, is best known for presenting TV shows like Top Gear and Clarkson’s Farm – and being unafraid of speaking his mind regardless of who he upsets.

The Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? host has won countless honours for his work over the years – including more recently a top British farming award.

Now, though, he’s won one that nobody saw coming.

Yes, it’s true, Clarkson is (unofficially) the UK’s sexiest hunk.

That is according to a poll run by Illicit Encounters – which calls itself ‘the best online dating site for married people’.

And Clarkson certainly wasn’t the only unlikely contender for the top prize.

Ex-Prime Minister Boris Johnson found himself on the list, along with Ukrainian PM Volodymyr Zelensky.

The 2,000 women who cast their votes had Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker as runner-up to Clarkson.

While ex-international rugby player and royal family member Mike Tindall and actor Ryan Reynolds came in third and fourth on the list.

Financial expert Martin Lewis finished in fifth place, while Dermot O’Leary and Idris Elba both wound up in joint-sixth place.

Zelensky, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and Pimlico Plumbing founder Charlie Mullins rounded out the top 10.

Random, we know.

Illicit Encounters asked its members to rate 50 famous faces from categories including sport, celebrity, politics and other public figures.

Commenting on Clarkson’s victory, Illicit Encounters spokeswoman Jessica Leoni says: “With the wax jacket and tweed shirt, clearly, Clarkson’s bad boy farm vibe is working for the over 30s.

“Landing top spot in our table won’t earn him diddly squat, but I’m sure it will give him bragging rights on the farm.”

Illicit Encounters also asked 2,000 men to rank a list of 50 women based on the same criteria.

Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid landed the top spot, while Amanda Holden came second.

Tory MP Penny Mordaunt ranked third in the contest and her former colleague Priti Patel was further down in ninth place.

The Princess of Wales and Meghan Markle both made the Top 10, with Middleton just overtaking Markle by one point.

Celebrity chef Nigella Lawson came fourth, with businesswoman Karen Brady and Carrie Johnson in fifth and sixth and TV presenter Gabby Logan came tenth.

On the female results, Leoni comments: “It must be said, for the women, there were fewer surprises [than with the men] – with TV darling Susanna Reid the obvious choice for men.

“It was a good result for the politicos, with Mordaunt and Patel both sneaking in the Top Ten – and there was little between the Princess and Duchess – so finally, that’s something for them to agree on.”
