Plymouth's Tom Daley has pushed aside David Beckham to be named the Hottest Hunk of 2013.

He beat the likes of One Direction's Harry Styles, Channing Tatum and Robert Pattinson in the poll by readers of Heat magazine.

The eighteen year old diving star got three times as many votes as Ryan Gosling in fifth place.tom daley2

He said: "It's very surreal and I guess I've got the 2012 games to thank for that. It's weird to think but thanks to everyone who voted.

"I just think of myself as a normal person who still has to go to school, who still has to train thirty hours a week and just gets on with life I guess."

Heat editor Lucy Cave said: "There are a lot of older women who will have taken a bit of a shine to him - grannies who think he's lovely. He's very sweet. He plays it perfectly - he's not naughty, he hasn't done anything wrong. He's very clean cut so mums approve of the fact their daughters like him, and they probably like him too."

The full top ten:

1.    Tom Daley (NEW ENTRY)
2.    Channing Tatum (40 LAST YEAR, +38 PLACES)
3.    David Beckham (1 LAST YEAR, -2 PLACES)
4.    Zac Efron (10 LAST YEAR, +6 PLACES)
5.    Ryan Gosling (2 LAST YEAR, -3 PLACES)
6.    Harry Styles (18 LAST YEAR, +12 PLACES)
7.    Taylor Lautner (17 LAST YEAR, +10 PLACES)
8.    Zayn Malik (51 LAST YEAR, +43 PLACES)

10.    Johnny Depp (8 LAST YEAR, -2 PLACES))
