FHM's annual list of 100 Sexiest Women in the World has been unveiled and securing the No. 1 spot is Girls Aloud's singer Cheryl Cole. She, thus, bests last year's champion hottie, actress Megan Fox, who falls into the second place this year.
Movie beauty and mother of one Jessica Alba is placed third on the list, one spot ahead of Britney Spears who is on the fourth position. The inclusion of the pop star in the list is a surprise taking into account that last year she was dubbed one of the world's "unsexiest" women by men's magazine Maxim.
Also making the yearly list is "Slumdog Millionaire" leading actress Freida Pinto. Appearing on the list for the very first time, she is ranked at No. 10.
