FHM is pleased to announce Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as the winner of FHMs 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2011 poll, sensationally stealing the crown from two-time winner Cheryl Cole.
Winning the coveted Sexiest Woman in the World crown is the latest in a series of great achievements for Plymouth-born Rosie.
The 24-year-old, who is dating actor Jason Statham, has scooped top modelling contracts with lingerie giants Victoria's Secret and Agent Provocateur and she replaces Megan Fox as the female lead in the upcoming Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
Commenting on her win, Rosie said:
"Wow. Thanks for voting guys; I'm so flattered to be FHMs Sexiest Woman in the World. This is a really exciting year for me and I hope you all enjoy Transformers 3."

Stuart Hood from FHM commented:
"Queen Cheryl is dead and succeeding her on the throne is a British sensation who is no stranger to stepping into the high heels of the world's most attractive women.
"In the last 12 months, actress and model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has replaced Kelly Brook in Jason Statham's heart and replaced Megan Fox in Transformers, and now she's replaced Wor Chezza as the planet's most lusted after female. Some year."
Each 100 Sexiest poll uncovers some more unusual celebrity crushes and this year is no exception. National treasure Helen Mirren, 64, notched up more than a few nods as she continues to represent the more mature sexy woman.
Now in its 17th year, FHM's 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll is the original and biggest search for the sexiest women in the world. This year over one million votes were cast by FHM readers worldwide.
FHM's 100 Sexiest supplement, featuring the hottest women in the world, comes free with the June edition of FHM magazine, on sale from 5 May.
