According to Glamour’s annual rankings, the star of Poldark is the sexiest man on the planet.

Turner beat off the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba, and all five members of the original line up of One Direction to win the title.

Known for his roles in The Hobbit trilogy, Being Human and the recent adaptation of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, the 32 year old actor beat last year’s winner Jamie Dornan into second place, with Tom Hiddleston holding onto third. Perhaps the surprise on the list was Benedict Cumberbatch’s coming in at 16th place.

Second year law student Laura said of Turner’s win, ‘YES…he’s a top babe…no one can swing a scythe like he does.
