Tulisa Contostavlos is FHM's sexiest woman
Pop star-turned-TV talent show judge Tulisa Contostavlos has been named the sexiest woman in the world by FHM magazine.
The former N-Dubz singer has seen her fame skyrocket thanks to her role as a panellist on Simon Cowell's The X Factor, and now she has seen off competition from former judge Cheryl Cole to take the sexiest woman mantle in the men's magazine's annual poll.
Contostavlos says, "It's a true honour and definitely a lovely confidence boost. I'm proud of me and I am who I am... I wouldn't wanna be anything less or anything more, I'm just myself.
"This is an award that will stay on the mantelpiece probably for the rest of my life."
Cole, who left the show to launch the American series with Cowell before she was sensationally sacked, is at number two in the countdown. She previously topped the list in 2009 and 2010.
Rihanna is at number three, while other stars in the top 10 include singer Katy Perry, actress Megan Fox and Black Swan star Mila Kunis.
Last year's winner, supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, dropped out of the top 10 completely, coming in at number 18.
