Bond star a suspected secret softie

Bond star Daniel Craig has topped a list of big-hearted bad boys, after a survey revealed the 007 actor to be the hunk most likely to have a surprisingly soft centre.

Women were asked to pick the celeb they thought most likely to be hiding a sensitive side and named ice-man Craig as their number one secret softie.

Rugged action star Gerard Butler was placed second in the poll of over 1,000 women, while cuddly X Factor host Dermot O'Leary surprisingly beat Batman baddy and Kleenex ad star Tom Hardy to third place.

Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch, known for playing it cool as the brooding TV sleuth rounded off the top five in the study, carried out to mark the launch of new Haagen-Dazs Secret Sensations sauce-centred ice creams.

As well as picking celebrity softies, the research also looked into women's appreciation of men who are in touch with their feelings, and found that more than three quarters of women are very happy with the modern man's fondness for chocolate and chick-flicks, but that one in four wished their other half would "man up" from time to time.
