And in the least surprising news of 2016, Poldark star Aidan Turner has been named the sexiest man on planet Earth.


The 32-year-old actor, who has also appeared in Being Human and the Hobbit movies, has been crowned the sexiest man of 2016 by Glamour magazine readers.

Turner beat off some serious competition - from Superman and Sherlock to Mr Christian Grey himself, as well as every single member of One Direction - but easily claimed the top spot on the annual poll.

Fifty Shades and The Fall star Jamie Dornan has now dropped down to the second sexiest man, after winning last year's vote. Tom Hiddleston has retained third while Henry Cavill and Zayn Malik made up the rest of the top five.
