star Ben Hardy has said that Tom Daley deserved to beat him in this year's Attitude HOT 100 poll.
The Olympic medal-winning diver topped the HOT 100 list voted for by Attitude
readers for the second consecutive year, while former Attitude
cover star Hardy finished 30 places behind, in a very respectable 31st place.
Hardy has since spoken about his placing, insisting he is happy to finish in Daley's wake. "He seems like a really nice lad and good-looking boy, so fair play to him, " Hardy told our friends at Digital Spy
"I was happy with 31," he continued. "People kept coming up to me and offering commiserations and I was like, 'I'm quite chuffed'. Everyone was like, 'Oh, unlucky', but I'd have been happy to be 100th."
Th 23-year-old actor then revealed that he has a 'man crush' on a few of Hollywood's leading men, saying: "I have so many man crushes - 'my brother' Tom Hardy, Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper - if he's here today, I might get a bit squealish."
