She bumped Megan Fox, last year’s winner, down to the number two spot. This is a huge jump for Cheryl, who came in 7th place in 2008.
FHM editor Chris Bell says: "It's been a revolutionary year in FHM's 100 Sexiest Women In The World poll - as old favorites such as Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz are rejected in favor of a new wave of female talent."
Britney made a huge jump up this year, coming in at number 4, after placing at 31 last year. This is the first time in three years a British star has come first in the poll, which was voted on by almost 10 million readers!
