Tulisa Crowned FHM's Sexiest Woman In The World ‎

Tulisa Contostavlos has been named the sexiest woman in the world by readers of FHM magazine. The N-Dubz star, who is currently at number one on the Vodafone Big Top 40 with her debut solo single 'Young', beat the likes of Cheryl Cole and former winner, model Rosie Huntington Whitley to take the honour.

Speaking about the award, Tulisa said: "Thank you so much for voting for me. It's a true honour and definitely a lovely confidence boost. I'm proud of me and I am who I am. I know that I'm marmite and I wouldn't wanna be anything less or anything more, I'm just myself.

She added: "I believe in embracing being sexy but I'm not one to agree with stripping off for the cameras, I like to be more subtle than that as these shots show. This is an award that will stay on the mantelpiece probably for the rest of my life."
