HOW ABOUT THESE MEN?

Our perennial favourites for Sexiest Man Alive who have never come close to the title

BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH

He's undeniably the hottest property in showbiz now, especially with all that Oscar buzz surrounding his brilliant performance in The Imitation Game. And women, proudly calling themselves Cumberbitches, willingly fall at his feet - even though he just got engaged.

TOM HIDDLESTON

He is the scene-stealer in The Avengers and trumps reigning Sexiest Man Alive Chris Hemsworth as the best thing in Thor: A Dark World. Enough said.

RYAN GOSLING

So what if he has had a baby with actress Eva Mendes? He never fails to set hearts aflutter each time he appears on-screen.

CHRIS PRATT

From flab to fab, the Guardians Of The Galaxy star single-handedly turned a little-known Marvel title into a money-making franchise.

JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT

The slender boyish-looking child star may never be classified as a hunk, but he makes up for it with wit and talent - loads of it!
