Magazine confirms what we already know... Fifty Shades star Jamie Dornan is hottest man on planet

By Sherna Noah

He's sexy and we know it. Holywood actor Jamie Dornan has topped a list of the world's sexiest men.

The Northern Ireland star of Fifty Shades Of Grey and The Fall first won fans as a model before gaining success as an actor. And now he has taken first place in Glamour magazine's annual poll, beating competition from heartthrobs such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Harry Styles and Jared Leto.

The poll results were revealed yesterday as 32-year-old Jamie showed off his impressive fitness skills by tweeting a picture of himself at Iron Fit Park at T13 in Belfast's Titanic Quarter.

It's not known when the picture was taken - it was posted yesterday afternoon - but it is believed to be quite recently. The actor can be seen pulling off what's known as an 'elbow lever'.

"Gave them 2 seconds to take this picture before I collapsed & cried," he wrote.

Belfast fitness trainer Neil McTaggart, who works at Iron Fit, quickly posted a Facebook response.

"It read: 'Cool. Jamie Dornan aka Christian Grey just tweeted a pic of himself throwing out an elbow lever down at the Park. This is why he is good at the sex!'

The hype surrounding the married father-of-one intensified yet again yesterday after a first official clip from new movie Fifty Shades Of Grey was unveiled.

It features his character Christian Grey picking up a few bedroom essentials in a DIY store. The footage sees the billionaire protagonist stocking up on cable ties, masking tape and rope as a flustered and nervous Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), who works part-time at the shop, serves him.

Businessman Grey suggests he has no intention of using any of his new purchases to redecorate.

While the clip from the film, which has been cloaked in secrecy, features none of the raunchy scenes that the books by EL James are famous for, there is plenty of sexual tension.

It ends with college student Steele, unaware of her soon-to-be lover's predilection for sadomasochism, joking: "Rope, tape, cable ties, you're the complete serial killer," to which Grey replies: "Not today."

The clip was released after the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) made Sam Taylor-Johnson's take on the raunchy novels an 18 certificate and said that the work "passed uncut".
