Actor Idris Elba, who James Bond fans are campaigning to be the next person to play 007, was named the sexiest man alive yesterday by People magazine. "Really?'" the 46-year-old London native told People.

Asked what he thought about his triumph, he said: "I was like, "Come on, no way. Really?"' he told the magazine".

"It's fantastic, I'm really, really happy with that". I was like, 'Yeah, you are kind of sexy today, ' " the "Thor" star joked. "It was a nice surprise - an ego boost for sure". The actor appeared as Heimdall in the latest instalment of the "Avengers" franchise and is returning to the TV series "Luther" for four episodes in season 5.

The star was preceded by Blake Shelton who won last year's coveted title much to the surprise of many.

A screen grab of actor Idris Elba's Twitter handle after he was named the sexiest man of the year. "And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, OK?" Days later he flatly denied it was going to happen, however.

People, a weekly magazine in the U.S., unveiled Elba in their cover this week. "I got picked on a little bit". But as soon as I could grow a moustache, I was the coolest kid on the block.

The dad of two - of 16-year-old daughter, Isan and 4-year-old son, Winston - said he strives to live with as few regrets as possible.

The actor took to Twitter to thank People magazine for naming him the sexiest man of 2018, while at the same time urging people to buy the magazine and to vote in the United States midterm elections. "Grew a moustache, had some muscles, bonkers". "You might as well do it to your heart's content".
