Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch voted Sexiest Man by Sun readers!

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who of course plays Sherlock in the hit BBC drama, has fought off competition from the likes of heartthrobs Harry Styles, David Beckham and Ryan Gosling to be crowned as Sexiest Man by Sun readers.

In a poll which listed one hundred hunks, Benedict scored 7,115 votes, while for instance Golden Balls David Beckham managed only 3,393.

However, modest Benedict has previously compared his visage to that of a horse, and revealed, “I’ve wanted to play roles that have gone to better-looking people.”

And his sister Tracy Peacock recently told The Sun that Benedict’s intelligence often put off prospective girlfriends.

But evidently, Sun readers weren’t put off by his brains and beauty combo, but to see who else landed a place in the top one hundred, click ‘Read more’…
