Builders have been named as the UK’s sexiest tradesmen in new research from Actavo Direct

The poll – which launches the search for the UK’s Sexiest Tradesman – asked over 2,000 female Brits to choose the trade they thought had the hottest men and the humble builder topped the poll with 32%.

With a £500 holiday voucher on offer to whoever submits a picture of the best beefcake, the people of Chelmsford are being urged to keep their eyes peeled for any high-vis-hunks in their local area.

Pictures can be submitted of partners, friends and colleagues – just make sure you have the permission of the person pictured before you enter.

To give you some ideas of the workmen who get the nation’s ladies hot under the collar, here’s the UK’s top five sexiest trades:

1. Builder 32%

2. Gardener 23%

3. Carpenter/Joiner 15%

4. Plumber 14%

5. Electrician 14%

Richard Chambers of Actavo Direct, said: “Every building site has someone on site who thinks they are god’s gift and we’re giving them the chance to prove it. So, if there is a lad on site who spends longer worrying about how they look and posing for passers by than working on the job, then this is your chance for a bit of fun.”
