The Top Ten

1 Marti Pellow

Even now in his 50s he has a hunky physique, and is still the sexiest man around. He is so talented, with the best voice of all, so much charisma, so enigmatic. Great performer. Marti Pellow has IT ALL in spades.

There was a reason why the band was called wet wet wet. Fancied the arse off him

Sex on legs, for sure!

Quite possibly the most handsome male ever born. And as producer Willy Mitchell noted, one of the best voices of the century, this man CAN SING! And...he is a performer, songwriter, musical theatre and panto actor. He has the goods to match his exceedingly good looks. He is clever, witty, and has a hilarious sense of humor. Oh...and let’s not forget to throw in his very sexy Scottish accent.
