Ed Sheeran has scored a high climber on a different type of chart after becoming one of the UK's top "weird crushes".
The singer has ranked in second place in a list of fanciable stars who are not conventionally good looking compiled by Heat, shooting up from last year's number 10.
Top of the weird crush 2014 list is TV presenter and comic Matt Richardson, known to viewers for his appearances on The Xtra Factor.
The 22-year-old deposed last year's winner, comedian Russell Howard, who has slipped from the top 10 completely.
R eaders of Heat magazine, heatworld.com and listeners of Heat Radio voted for their top choice, with past winners including Derren Brown, Jeremy Clarkson and Pointless co-host Richard Osman.
Matt said of his win: "I'm really happy. I really wanted it. A lot of people might be embarrassed about it, but I thought I'm never going to be 'torso of the week', so I'd better win this one."
Heat editor Lucie Cave said: "Sexiness comes in all shapes, sizes, ages and smells, and at Heat we like to celebrate the unconventional."
