Move over, Kendall Jenner, there’s another sexy woman in town. She might not be as well known as the reality star turned top model, but "Ordinary Lies" actress Michelle Keegan was just named FHM magazine’s "Sexiest Woman in the World.” The 27-year-old joins the ranks of Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence, Mila Kunis and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, all of whom previously held the racy title.
It’s not too much of a jump for Keegan. Last year, FHM ranked the English actress and model as No. 2. Jenner, 19, came in second place this year. Emilia Clarke, Margot Robbie, Ariana Grande and Kate Upton were included in the top 10. Click here to see FHM’s full list of the “100 Sexiest Women.”
There’s bad news for anyone who hoped she was single: Keegan is engaged to TV host Mark Wright. But her fiancé might not be happy about her new status. DJ Toby Anstis recently told the Sun that Wright didn’t like the racy pictures Keegan posted online during her bachelorette party.
"He told me he was worried Michelle was posting one too many sexy pictures while on her [bachelorette party],” Anstis said, according to the New York Daily News. “Mark gets worried about his gorgeous bride-to-be in a bikini surrounded by so many blokes ogling her.” He added: "I tell him he's got nothing to worry about."
Keegan doesn’t seemed to be worried about a few scandalous pictures, though. Instead, she took to her official Twitter account after news about her new title broke. “Thank you SO much for all your lovely comments about @FHM I'm very overwhelmed & totally can't believe it! Thank you to EVERYONE who voted!” she wrote. The post quickly garnered dozens of likes and shares from her 2.99 million followers.
