As the 2014 winner is crowned, we take a look back at the past 10 ladies who landed the number one spot.
This year’s S3xiest Woman in the World – according to FHM readers – goes to ditsy American beauty Jennifer Lawrence, while former Corrie star Michelle Keegan topped the UK poll and came second worldwide.
Jen beat off stiff competition from mostly n4ked pop beauty Rihanna, who’s been hogging all the headlines with her recent bum and boob baring.
And with this, ahem, majorly need-to-know news being announced (FHM describe it as the most exciting date in their calendar), we though it provided the perfect excuse to take a look back at the other beauties who got greedy and nabbed all the votes.

2009: Cheryl Cole
Former Girls Aloud singer Chez was 2009′s winner. The FHM Editor said: “St George would be proud – a Brit being name the s3xiest woman in the world. And what a woman – no one but Cheryl has the looks, the body, the talent or the no-nonsense Geordie sense of fun. She’s dominated British TV screens, the UK charts and the tabloids for the last year – and now, finally, she’s been recognised as a truly international beauty. Never mind the bandmates: Cheryl is FHM’s No.1.”

Tulisa pinched the top spot from the supermodel in 2012 and was the fourth Brit to win in a row. “Thank you so much for voting for me. It’s a true honour and definitely a lovely confidence boost. I’m proud of me and I am who I am. I know that I’m Marmite and I wouldn’t wanna be anything less or anything more. I’m just myself.” She added: “This is an award that will stay on the mantelpiece probably for the rest of my life.”
