London: Cheryl Cole has pipped Hollywood beauties Megan Fox and Jessica Alba to be named the `Sexiest Woman In The World` for the second year in a row.
The 26-year-old who has separated from cheating husband, footballer Ashley Cole, grabbed the top spot in a poll of the 100 sexiest women by male readers of FHM magazine, reported Daily Mail online.
The new achievement will add to the `X Factor` judge`s profile after successfully launching her solo career.
`Transformers` siren Fox, 23, ended up in second place to Cole for the second year in a row, despite peeling off in the new Armani advertisements.
`Victoria`s Secret` model Marissa Miller came in fourth, while newly-single `Saturdays` bandmember Frankie Sandford appeared in fourth place.
The highest new entry in the list is `Twilight` actress Kristen Stewart at number six, perhaps boosted by her legions of male `Twi-hard` fans.
Unsurprising additions in the top 10 are models Kelly Brook and Keeley Hazell, who have both been deemed the Sexiest Woman In Britain previously.
After putting in many appearances in bikinis and returning to her lingerie modelling days as the new face of Ultimo, Brook jumped from last year`s 48 to this year`s seventh.
Brazilian model Adriana Lima occupied the eighth spot, and Jessica Alba bagged the ninth position.
Unfortunately for Britney Spears, she dropped from last year`s four to 44 in 2010.
Angelina Jolie only managed number 70, but was still 11 places above love rival Jennifer Aniston at 81. A new appearance is Tiger Woods` estranged wife Elin Nordegren at 65, who has garnered a lot of public sympathy since her husband`s numerous affairs were made public last year.
