Gordon Ramsay has been crowned the UK's sexiest TV presenter. 

Yep you read that right, the famously sweary foodie has turned up the heat in the kitchen, pulse-racing in his chef whites to top the poll of hottest TV males. 

Seeing off competition from other (somewhat surprising) sexy entrants including 'Good Morning Britain’s' Richard Madeley and chat show host Jonathan Ross, who came in second and third place respectively, the Hell’s Kitchen star saw the highest influx of positive tweets that included the word “sexy” over the last year on Twitter.

Perhaps it's the 54-year-old's off-screen role as a doting dad-of-five or the way he calls everyone an idiot sandwich that has seen the TV chef's sex appeal soar?

Other big names to make the list include former daytime chat show host Paul O’Grady who made it to fifth spot and controversial presenter Piers Morgan who wasn't best pleased to come in at number seven. 

After learning of his position, Morgan shared his disapproval of the findings on Twitter to his 7.9 million followers.

Rounding off the list of supposedly irresistible male presenters is 'The Great British Bake Off' duo Paul Hollywood and Noel Fielding, and radio presenter Jeremy Vine.

At the opposite end of the scale, fans found Adrian Chiles, Noel Edmonds, Alexander Armstrong, newly wed Ant McPartlin and Bear Grylls to be among the least sexy male TV personalities.

Celebrities including Jamie Oliver, Trevor Phillips, Nick Knowles, Eamonn Holmes, Louis Theroux and Gary Lineker also featured in the survey.

The research was conducted as part of the Self-Made Celebs study, which analysed viewer’s tweets to see who had the highest influx of positive tweets that also include the word ‘sexy’ over the last year.

Commenting on the findings Peter Bennett, Head of Brand Marketing at casino PlayOJO, who conducted the study said: “I think these findings are a testament to the best thing about social media - the fact that it gives people the chance to voice their opinions, and find someone to agree with them.

“It’s therefore not surprising that well-known TV hosts with stronger or more dominating personalities - such as Gordon Ramsay - garner popularity among fans online, as their attention-grabbing actions or statements are very easy to comment on.

“With social media, particularly forums, it’s also common to see controversial or more polarising opinions generating more of a reaction online, which may account for some of the more surprising results - such as Piers Morgan being deemed more attractive than Paul Hollywood, for example.”
