'This Morning' star Holly Willoughby has been crowned “the hottest woman on the box”, according to new research carried out by Slingo

Holly Willoughby has been crowned “the hottest woman on the box”.

The ‘This Morning’ presenter, 42, topped a list of the TV ladies who were the most searched on Google with the terms "hot", "sexy" and "calendar" – which included ‘Game of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke, 36, and model sisters Kendall Jenner, 27, and Kylie Jenner, 26 – according to new research carried out by Slingo.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Holly is still the hottest woman on the box – and these results prove it.

“She has had her popularity tested over the past year because of claims she queue-jumped to see the Queen lying in state and because of her strained relationship with Phil.

“But it seems she’s still the public’s favourite when it comes to who they fancy.”

Holly overcame competition from the likes of former ‘Coronation Street’ star Kym Marsh, 47, and Holly's 'This Morning' colleague Alison Hammond, 48, was third.

Former ‘I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!’ star Helen Flanagan, 33, and ‘Killing Eve’ Jodie Comer, 30, also made the top 10.

What's more, in the male equivalent, former ‘Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps’ star Will Mellor, 47, made his first appearance on the ranking – finishing second to ‘Superman’ star Henry Cavill, 40, and beating off competition from ‘Venom’ star Tom Hardy, 45, and ‘Happy Valley’ actor James Norton, 38 – in the aftermath of his stint on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

The source said: “Will is on the list for the first time and is clearly a favourite with the ladies.

“His turn on 'Strictly' has done wonders for his popularity, especially as he beat hunks like Tom at number three and James at number four.

“It is definitely something for Will to brag about.”
