Jamie Dornan makes Heat mag's top 10 'hot hunks' poll

By Colin Francis

Hollywood star Zac Efron has been named the 'hottest hunk' of 2014 – ousting Tom Daley, who took top spot in the Heat magazine poll last year.

The 26-year-old High School Musical actor, who has said he is getting therapy to deal with his excessive drinking, has moved up three places to steal the crown.

The highest new entry in the annual list is Northern Ireland actor Jamie Dornan in eighth place, who will be seen starring in the screen adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey next year.

Dornan shot to fame after his role as a serial killer in TV series The Fall with former X Files actress Gillian Anderson. It was filmed in Northern Ireland.

Olympic medal-winning diver Daley, who was on a plane which had to make an emergency landing in Russia yesterday, was runner-up, while David Beckham retained his position in third place.

The magazine said Efron's topless appearance in the movie Bad Neighbours, along with having his shirt ripped off by Rita Ora at the MTV awards, had secured his place at number one in the 101 Hottest Hunks list.

Heat's editor-in-chief Lucie Cave said users of its website "voted in their thousands and selected Zac Efron as the hottest man alive".

George Clooney – who is engaged to British lawyer Amal Alamuddin – has seen his appeal drop as he plummeted 37 places to number 60.

Sherlock Holmes star Benedict Cumberbatch was a new entry at number 24, while Prince Harry is at 32, down eight places from 2013.

The Hottest Hunks top 10 (with last year's positions in brackets):

1 (4) Zac Efron

2 (1) Tom Daley

3 (3) David Beckham

4 (25) Harry Judd

5 (33) Leonardo DiCaprio
