Gordon Ramsay has been voted the nation's sexiest celebrity chef.
The F Word host and richest chef in the world topped a poll of TVcooks voted for by more than 4,000 women.
Though tabloid reports recently emerged claiming Ramsay has been cheating on his wife for seven years, his alleged infidelity seems not to have dented his sex appeal among female fans.
A spokesman for www.OnePoll.com, which carried out the research, said: "We weren't surprised that Gordon came out on top.
"Women go for bad boys all the time. The fact he's rumoured to be cheating on his wife for years only adds to his appeal.
"It makes him more obtainable for everyday women on the street."
Hell's Kitchen's Jean-Christophe Novelli, 47, was voted second while Marco-Pierre White, Ramsay's former mentor, came in third.
Saturday Kitchen host James Martin came fourth while Jamie Oliver rounded off the top five.
A spokesman for www.OnePoll.com added: "Most of the men in this poll aren't purely chefs. Most of them are highly successful restaurateurs, broadcasters and TV personalities.
"That combined with a fiery temper and lots of money are bound to appeal to the opposite sex."
The top ten sexiest chefs are:
1 Gordon Ramsay
2 Jean-Christophe Novelli
3 Marco-Pierre White
4 James Martin
5 Jamie Oliver
6 Raymond Blanc
7 Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
8 Gary Rhodes
9 Ainsley Harriott
10 Simon Rimmer
