Idris Elba is named People's Sexiest Man Alive

06 November 2018

Sure, he might have already received the title of Order of the British Empire for his services to drama - but Idris Elba has now been crowned Sexiest Man Alive!

While he didn't get him in-studio for the big reveal, Fallon had Elba via satellite from London where he could share the exciting news with everyone.

Telling People how he reacted to the news, the 46-year-old said: "I was like, 'come on, no way. Really?'" Elba told the celebrity publication. Really?' I looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. I was like, "Yeah, you are kind of sexy today".

One of Britain's best-known stars, Elba won a Golden Globe for his lead role in BBC television detective series "Luther", played a Norse god in "Thor" and appeared in US television series "The Wire".

The Luther star has been handed the annual honour - which a year ago went to country singer Blake Shelton - by the U.S. publication and he admitted that it was an "ego boost" to receive the news. This is only the third time a man of colour has won the award, following Johnson in 2016 and Denzel Washington 10 years before.

Samsung's Getting Ready to Unveil the Folding Phone
Samsung Developer Conference ( SDC ), which is scheduled at Moscone West Convention Center, San Francisco on November 7-8. We neither have a confirmed name of the phone but a report from GizmoChina reveals that it may be called the Galaxy F.

Now, after months of anticipation the magazine finally has revealed this year's victor is British actor Idris Elba. Days later he flatly denied it was going to happen, however.

Elba will be featured in a special double issue that will hit newsstands later this week.

"I was very tall and skinny", said Elba, who is 6ft 3ins. "And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, OK?"

He is also planning a wedding with his fiancee Sabrina Dhowre.

Elba has a 16-year-old daughter, Isan, and a 4-year-old son, Winston, from previous relationships as he cites being able to witness their births as 'the biggest and best thing ever'. But again, as soon as I could grow a mustache, I was the coolest kid on the block.
