Troy hunk Orlando Bloom has beaten popular heart-throbs Jude Law, HUGH GRANT and Ewan McGregor in the battle for first place in SKY MOVIES' Britain's sexiest actor survey.

The 27-year-old is one place ahead of his Troy co-star Sean Bean followed by Grant, McGregor and Law while portly COLD MOUNTAIN star RAY WINSTONE shocked fans by being voted into fifth place.

A Sky Movies spokesman said: "It's usually the likes of Jude Law and Ewan McGregor who are voted Britain's sexiest actors. But it seems that Orlando Bloom's star is rising. He's been in some big films like Troy recently and appeals to all generations."

Bloom hit the big time when he was cast in Lord Of The Rings as LEGOLAS while still at drama school.
