Niall Horan is the world's most desirable man this Valentine's Day (14.02.13).

The One Direction hunk topped a poll by We Love Pop magazine to find out the guy most girls want to marry on the most romantic day of the year.

Niall beat rival boy band member, The Wanted's Nathan Sykes, to take the top spot while Justin Bieber came third.

And despite Niall's bandmate Harry Styles being a renowned hit with ladies all over the world, Taylor Swift's former beau could only manage sixth place.

We Love Pop editor Malcolm Mackenzie said: ''Like most people, we expected Harry Styles to come out top - but it seems girls are getting fed up with pop stars who cover themselves in tattoos, smoke and jump from one girlfriend to the next.

''These results show that good boys are hot at the moment!''

Niall and Harry's other bandmate Louis Tomlinson also made the top 10 but there was no place for Zayn Malik and Liam Payne.

Other hunks in the top 10 included Justin Bieber and Olympic diver Tom Daley.

1 - Niall Horan (One Direction)

2 - Nathan Sykes (The Wanted)

3 - Justin Bieber

4 - Tom Daley

5 - George Shelley (Union J)

6 - Harry Styles (One Direction)

7 - Aston Merrygold (JLS)

8 - Louis Thomlinson (One Direction)
