Idris Elba Named People's Sexiest Man Alive 2018!

Idris Elba Named People's Sexiest Man Alive 2018!

Last year, country singer and The US Voice judge Blake Shelton took the title. "Life isn't about thinking about what you should have done", adds Elba, who is now shooting the Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw with former Sexiest Man Alive Dwayne Johnson. As the actor himself told People, "It was a nice surprise - an ego boost for sure".

The big news was publicized on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where the actor was brought in via satellite from his hometown of London.

"I was like, "Come on, no way", the 46-year-old told the publication. "Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out".

He said: "Who'd have thought it!" I was like, 'Yeah, you are kind of sexy today.' But to be honest, it was just a nice feeling.

Elba, now 6ft 3ins, said: "I was very tall and skinny".

The semi-trailer was registered to Li's home northeastern Liaoning province, more than 2,000km from the scene of the incdient. The Gansu provincial authorities demanded an examination of unsafe sections of expressways across the province.

His most retweeted tweet so far was a cheeky closeup photo of his face with a filter in which he wrote, "My name's Elba, Idris Elba".

He also took the opportunity to encourage his followers to vote in the upcoming United States midterm elections. Thank you @people & all the fans for naming me #SexiestManAlive. "Your vote can make a difference!" he said. But as soon as I could grow a moustache, I was the coolest kid on the block.

He is also planning a wedding with his fiancee Sabrina Dhowre. "Grew a mustache, had some muscles, bonkers".

Elba has a 16-year-old daughter, Isan, and a 4-year-old son, Winston, from previous relationships as he cites being able to witness their births as 'the biggest and best thing ever'.

Only kidding, we're firmly of the opinion that the star of The Wire and Luther has always been one of the coolest people alive and he now has the sexified accolade to show just how much sexy sex he sexes.
