Jamie Dornan has topped a list of the world's sexiest men.

The Irish actor has beaten competition from around the globe to take first place in Glamour magazine's annual poll.

The accolade comes as fans of the former model whip themselves into a frenzy of excitement for the upcoming release of the film Fifty Shades of Grey this month.

Credentials

The 32-year-old has already proven his acting credentials in The Fall in which he starred with Gillian Anderson.

He beat two British actors to the top spot. Benedict Cumberbatch (38), star of The Imitation Game, came in second place, followed by Thor star Tom Hiddleston (33).

A few well-known Irish faces popped up on the top 50 list. Mullingar's finest, Niall Horan (21) from One Direction, was voted in at number 22 on the list.

His fellow band member Harry Styles dropped one position to seventh in the annual list this year.

Michael Fassbender (37), who is currently busy filming the biopic of Steve Jobs comes in at number 24.

Meanwhile, Dublin actor Colin Farrell (38) just about made it, coming in at number 50 as voted by the readers.

Coldplay's Chris Martin (37) who "consciously uncoupled" from Gwyneth Paltrow, made it into the list for the first time this year, coming in 27th place. Another newcomer was former Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens (32) who was voted as number 32.

Favourites

But the list also featured some old favourites, including actor Johnny Depp (51) at number 12. Teen favourite Robert Pattinson (28), star of the Twilight movies, fell two places to fourth this year, while Henry Cavill (31) came in fifth.

Glamour's sexiest men were voted for by 80,000 readers. The list appears in their March issue.
