Olympic bronze medallist Tom Daley has topped an annual poll of the "hottest hunks", beating stars including David Beckham, Johnny Depp and Harry Styles.

The 18-year-old, who has been mentoring contestants in ITV's show Splash!, triumphed in the annual list compiled by Heat magazine.

The diver beat actor Channing Tatum, who finished in second place, while last year's winner David Beckham was ranked third.

Daley said topping the list was "surreal" and that he did not consider himself a "hunk".

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.

– Tom Daley

Boyband One Direction - who found fame on ITV's X Factor - took two places in the top ten with Harry Styles at six and Zayn Malik at eight.

However, it was bad news for Twilight actor Robert Pattinson, who failed to make the top 10.

I'm delighted that the official hottest man on planet Earth is not only British but also wears Speedos for a living.
