Sofia Vergara has been voted as AskMen's Most Desirable Woman by its US users, though she hasn't quite found the same popularity across in the UK, placing at "just" 14. The annual poll saw Vergara jump from number three last year to top spot, the 'Modern Family' star beating out the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Miranda Kerr and Zooey Deschanel to the honour - though the latter gained a modicum of revenge in the UK by taking the top spot ahead of former 'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson in second and Daisy Lowe in third.

Vergara gave thanks for the nod on the official website US website of AskMen , reports Entertainment Weekly, stating "I am so honored to be AskMen's most desired woman this year. A big thank you to all the men who desire me." Other notable names on the US list included Blake Lively, who won the poll last year only to fall 31 places this time round, 'Twilight's' Kristen Stewart, who jumped from 90 last year to 27 this, and wife of PRINCE WILLIAM KATE MIDDLETON who came in high at 11, her bridesmaid sister PIPPA down at number 98.

There was quite a difference in the UK list however, with Pippa vaulting right up to number six, leaving her sister Kate behind at 10, and breakthrough singer Lana Del Rey taking fourth spot ahead of more usual inclusions such as Rihanna and BEYONCE.
