Clarkson makes fanciable list

Simon Cowell was number one.  Others to featured in the poll include Jeremy Clarkson's Top Gear co-presenter Richard Hammond, US President Barack Obama, funnyman Ricky Gervais and Gavin and Stacey star James Corden.

Researchers said more than half of those who voted for Cowell said they were turned on by his power - although they put Barack Obama only in seventh place with 47% of the vote.

Teen singing sensation Justin Bieber came 10th, with a quarter of the women who did not vote for him saying the 16-year-old was too young.

The research was carried out for UK city deal website  Mark Pearson, managing director of the website, said: "I think the general consensus is that men like Barack Obama and Simon Cowell are attractive to women because they are so powerful, Ricky Gervais and James Corden were more suitable for the women who wanted a laugh."
