Tom Daley
Tom Daley has been named the ‘Hottest Hunk of 2013’.

The Olympic diver and Splash! star topped the reader poll from Heat magazine as a brand-new entry on its annual rankings.

"It’s surreal because I just do diving because I love doing it," Daley said.

"For people to vote for me like this is great and I want to say a big thank you to everyone who voted."

He added: "I don’t think of myself as a hunk. I just think of myself as a normal person who still goes to school, who still has to train 30 hours a week and who just gets on with life!"

Heat’s 2013 Hottest Hunks top ten was as follows (last year’s position in brackets):

1. (NE) Tom Daley
2. (40) Channing Tatum
3. (1) David Beckham
4. (10) Zac Efron
5. (2) Ryan Gosling
6. (18) Harry Styles
7. (17) Taylor Lautner
8. (51) Zayn Malik
9. (22) Olly Murs
10. (8) Johnny Depp

Heat editor-in-chief Lucie Cave said: "I’m delighted that the official hottest man on planet Earth is not only British but also wears Speedos for a living.

"Heat readers have once again shown that they have faultless taste."

The full list of the magazine’s 101 Hottest Hunks can be found in this week’s Heat, on sale now.

Daley was last year named Digital Spy readers’ sexiest male celebrity of 2012, beating Channing Tatum into second place.
