The poll concluded that Americans are the most attractive looking people in the world.

A spokeswoman for www.OnePoll.com said: "America has got a lot on offer and boasts some of the sexiest people on the planet."

"The likes of Jessica Alba, Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt all help America's image as a hot bed of good looking people."

"But with a population of more than 300 million, they do have an unfair advantage."

Sexy Swedes helped the nation into sixth spot. Legendary Hollywood beauties like Ingrid Bergman, Greta Garbo and more recently, the hunky Alexander Skarsgard, are responsible for their reputation.

Despite the fact that the lovely Emma Watson, Kiera Knightley and Cheryl Cole are all British, the UK found itself far lower on the list than the US and Australia.

Said the OnePoll spokeswoman, "England's talent only got them into seventh place and despite Gerard Butler waving the flag for Scotland, they only just beat the Germans (who came in at Number Twenty)."

"But in fairness, when you think of good looking countries, Sweden, Italy, France and Brazil talent all spring to mind before us lazy, pale Brits."

"If you're looking for some fun in the sun, you now know where to head on holiday."
