Who's the sexiest male of 2009?

Here's something to brighten a cold day. The result of the Romantic Novelists' Association's annual poll on 'who is the sexiest male?' has been announced. Always an eagerly awaited thing in romance author circles. This being a subject we take very much to heart, you understand.

"British actor Richard Armitage has leapt from last year's 4th place to this year topping the ratings in the Romantic Novelists' Association 2009 Valentine's poll, to take the title of Sexiest Thing on Two Legs, beating top Hollywood stars to the number one spot.

Johnny Depp, who topped last year's poll, was pushed firmly into second place, with Hugh Jackman and George Clooney mere also-rans. "Richard Armitage took 20% of the vote, more than double the count of any other male on the list," said the RNA pollster. "He was a clear winner from the off."

The RNA is not alone in admiration of the actor, as numerous online Richard Armitage fan sites will testify. The ardency began with North and South, grew by leaps and bounds with his appearance as the leather-clad baddie in Robin Hood, and shows no sign of diminishing as Spooks takes to the airwaves.

According to romantic novelists, the sexiest male celebrities of 2009 are:

1. Richard Armitage
2. Johnny Depp
3. Hugh Jackman
4. George Clooney
5. Daniel Craig
6. Sean Bean
7. Alan Rickman
8. David Tennant
9. Pierce Brosnan
10. Gerard Butler"

Can't argue with that, can you? Slightly preoccupied as I was, I didn't even vote! Nice to see Johnny Depp in second place, too. Johnny, you may remember, will never be quite happy without me in his life. I'd long suspected that fact but it was nice to have it confirmed.

It's all to do with biorhythms, apparently. The theory goes that there are three fixed cycles which start at your moment of birth - a 23-day physical cycle, a 28-day emotional cycle and a 33-day mental cycle. By knowing someone's birthday you can work out the highs and lows of their life. And, by clicking

Isn't that useful?

    89% intellectual here - but I can't beat you (or the stunningly gorgeous, tall and slender Kate J)

    But I do have a total of 88% with Mr Banderas. Including 96% physical and 98% intellectual. Yes, please... :o)
