Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens has been named Britain's best-dressed man by GQ magazine, but Ed Sheeran has been named the worst.

Stevens, whose character Matthew Crawley was killed off in a shock exit from the ITV1 costume drama at Christmas, triumphed over heart-throbs Robert Pattinson, Daniel Craig and David Beckham in GQ's annual list.

Brit-winning chart star Ed Sheeran topped the worst-dressed list, followed by Labour MP Jon Cruddas and Katie Price's ex, Alex Reid.

The Duke of Cambridge is 37th best-dressed but his father is ranked ahead of him in eighth place, one place behind Twilight star Pattinson.

GQ magazine said William "epitomises true British style", adding: "Has the Duchess of Cambridge upped her husband's fashion game? It would appear so."

But the magazine says of Charles that "despite sticking to a classic uniform, he always looks on trend", adding: "This is a man who knows what he likes, knows how to wear it and sticks with it whatever the prevailing fashions."

It said: "HRH may be bemused at being a fashion icon, but he's proved himself the king of tailoring."

Newly-knighted Tour de France and Olympic cycling champion Sir Bradley Wiggins is a new entry in the list at 30.

Other new names are Homeland star Damian Lewis (12), One Direction singer Zayn Malik (17), cross-dressing artist Grayson Perry (22), and Paralympic champion Jonnie Peacock (48).

After Stevens, the top five is completed by actor Tom Hiddleston, rapper Tinie Tempah, Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw and X Factor presenter Dermot O'Leary.
