Olympic diving star Tom Daley has replaced footballer David Beckham at the top of an annual poll of “hottest hunks”.

Bronze medallist Daley took first place in Heat magazine’s list.

Runner-up was American actor Channing Tatum, and last year’s champion Beckham was third.

Daley, no stranger to launching himself off the 10-metre board, was surprised he had reached the dizzying heights by topping the 101 Hottest Hunks Of 2013 list.

The star, famed for his toned torso and permatan, said: “It’s surreal because I just do diving because I love doing it. For people to vote for me like this is great and I want to say a big thank you to everyone who voted.

“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.”

Boyband One Direction take two places in the top 10 with Harry Styles at six and Zayn Malik at eight.

Twilight actor Robert Pattinson slides out of the upper reaches of the list - from last year’s six to this year’s 21 - although his co-star Taylor Lautner makes it into the top 10 at seven.

Heat’s 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.”

Also in the top 10 were Zac Efron at four, Ryan Gosling at five, Olly Murs at nine and Johnny Depp at 10.
