Jeremy Clarkson has come top of a poll of ‘Men That Men Love'.

The outspoken Top Gear presenter's no-nonsense approach to political correctness, his wit and dislike of speed cameras and caravans make him a firm favourite with UK blokes.

Second in the poll of 4,000 men is Indiana Jones star Ray Winstone, followed by chef Gordon Ramsay.

Tough-talking Apprentice boss Alan Sugar came fourth while Dirty Harry star Clint Eastwood was fifth.

Jon Dixon, a spokesman for XXX Mints, which carried out the poll, said: ''Jeremy Clarkson was the clear winner in this poll.

“He's confident, knowledgeable and just a little bit arrogant, which are traits that men clearly admire in other men.''

Welsh boxing sensation Joe Calzaghe came sixth and Die Hard actor Bruce Willis seventh, comedian Peter Kay eighth, while footballer David Beckham was ninth and The Office creator Ricky Gervais 10th.
