Those busy folk at Hellomagazine. com have come across with their shortlist of the most attractive people of 2008. A reported half a million votes were cast by their viewers, which resulted in the follow top five.

Most Attractive Women:
1. Britney Spears
2. Angelina Jolie
3. Delta Goodrem
4. Shakira
5. Liv Tyler

Most Attractive Men:

1. Robert Pattinson
2. David Tennant
3. Hugh Laurie
4. Orlando Bloom
5. Daniel Craig

Britney seemingly received "43% of the vote". Ok, that's a nice boost for her esteem but, in reality, it's akin to her winning those three MTV VMA awards back in September.

The rest are no-brainers, really. It's nice to see Delta get a nod, perhaps she might rustle up some self-worth and dump her fiance (what's this about Brian getting a supporting slot on her Believe Again tour... only to pull out of dates to particiapte in a poker tournament?). Jessica Alba's absence is a bit strange, especially since the voters seem to be leaning towards the ultra effeminate (here's tipping our caps to you David Tennant and Orlando Bloom). One might also exclaim "Hugh Laurie?!" but I've always found him strangely attractive ever since a Little Bit of Fry and Laurie hit our screens waaaaaay back in the 80s. Yep, I'm that old. And a bit of an early starter...
