Zac Efron has been voted the Hottest Hunk of 2014 by readers of heat Magazine!
The 26-year-old movie heartthrob toppled last year’s winner, Tom Daley, who slipped to second spot in the annual 101 Hottest Hunks poll.
A regular on the countdown, David Beckham was voted in at third place for the second consecutive year.
Zac’s meteoric three-place climb to the summit was no doubt helped by his torso-tastic role in Bad Neighbours and, of course, Rita Ora ripping his shirt off at the MTV Movie Awards in April.
heat Editor-in-chief Lucie Cave said: “Sometimes the endless procession of sexy celebrity men can seem insuperable.
“Leafing through image after image after image can be tough, but heatworld users managed it – they voted in their thousands and selected Zac Efron as the hottest man alive. For their fortitude and courage, we thank them."
Speaking to Entertainment NOW!, Zac explained that his topless scenes in Bad Neighbours forced him to work out more.
Elsewhere, pop supergroup McBusted triumphed ahead of One Direction in the battle of the boybands with Harry Judd climbing 21 places to number four.
