TV presenter Kirsty Allsop came 91st in the FHM magazine poll the 100 most sexy women in the world. Just ahead of — her at 83 — was soprano Katherine Jenkins, also making her first entry in the chart.

They both beat supermodel Kate Moss, who has dropped out of the top 100 altogether. She was 68 last year. Another notable absentee was Myleene Klass, who was 67th in 2007.

There were three Brits in the top 10 – pin-up Keeley Hazell (3), Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole (7) and actress Keira Knightley (10).

Transformers star Fox, 22, was a new entry along with Prince Harry’s girlfriend Chelsy Davy and model Agyness Deyn.

Fox knocked last year’s winner Jessica Alba off the top spot. The Californian beauty had to make do with second place this time.

The 16 re-entries included Victoria Beckham and the Minogue sisters, Dannii and Kylie.

FHM’s editor-in-chief Anthony Noguera said:

‘Megan Fox is a very deserving winner of this year’s FHM title.

‘From out of nowhere, she’s captured the hearts – and fantasies – of British men to capture the No1 slot.

‘With such incredible competition, and after just one major film role, that is an amazing achievement.’

Some 20% of the women in the list were 26. Forty-six were blondes, 52 brunettes and two red heads.
