Sexy Becks is head of hottest hunks
DAVID Beckham has been ranked the sexiest man on the planet, beating screen stars such as Robert Pattinson and Johnny Depp.
The tattooed soccer ace - who has often wowed fans by posing in his pants - topped the inaugural "hottest hunks in the world" list compiled by Heat magazine.
Second place in the list went to movie star Ryan Gosling, with Ryan Reynolds in third spot.
The list was compiled from reader votes and an expert panel including a modelling agency boss and a celebrity photographer who judged the men on talent, dress sense, sex appeal and personality.
LA Galaxy star Beckham was one of three Brits to make the top 10.
He was joined by movie stars Pattinson (six) and Tom Hardy (seven). Strictly Come Dancing winner Harry Judd was placed 12th.
Heat editor Lucie Cave said of winner Beckham: "He's got the lot - talent, style, sex appeal, charisma. Women adore him, men want to be him, and we're absolutely thrilled that he has topped our poll."
The full list is in the new edition of the magazine, which is out today.
