Lawrence tops FHM 100 Sexiest list

Jennifer Lawrence has topped FHM's list of the world's sexiest women

Jennifer Lawrence has been named the sexiest woman in the world, topping the annual countdown of the top 100 by FHM magazine.

The Hunger Games actress has succeeded last year's winner Mila Kunis, who has now slipped to sixth place.

Former Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan is the highest ranking British name, and is runner-up overall.

New presenter of ITV's Good Morning Britain, Susanna Reid, shot up 66 places over the past 12 months to finish in 30th position.

And the broadcaster and food writer Nigella Lawson made her debut on the list at number 21. At 54, she is the oldest person on the list.

Jennifer, 23, who dates British actor Nicholas Hoult, has become a huge star on the back of her role as Katniss in the Hunger Games series, and landed a best actress Oscar last year for Silver Linings Playbook.

Dan Jude, the editor of the FHM 100 Sexiest supplement which is published with the magazine on Thursday (May 1), said: "She's run away with the title this year and it's no great surprise. Not only is she the most in-demand actress on the planet, but men the world over have fallen in love with her kooky charm."

Michelle Keegan said of her success: "I'm so flattered. I believe that being sexy isn't wearing lots of heavy make-up or having the perfect hair or figure - it's about self-confidence, being comfortable with yourself, smiling and being happy."

Model Emily Ratajkowski, who appeared naked in Robin Thicke's video for his single Blurred Lines, is the highest new entry at number four.

Kate Moss, who turned 40 earlier this year, has returned to the list once again at number 42, and Countdown brainbox Rachel Riley is the highest riser, shooting up 73 places to number 17.

The biggest drop is for former X Factor judge T ulisa Contostavlos, who has plummeted from last year's number 11 to this year's 82.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
