Idris Elba Named People's Sexiest Man Alive 2018!

Idris Elba has received an "ego boost" after being named the sexiest man alive by USA celebrity magazine People. On Monday's broadcast of "The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon", Idris claimed his mother would be "very, very proud." .

Golden Globe-winning Elba is the 33rd Hollywood star to be named the magazine's Sexiest Man Alive since the annual campaign started in 1985.

Past winners include Dwayne Johnson, David Beckham, Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine, Channing Tatum and last year's honoree, country star Blake Shelton.

With a massive fanbase, Elba's admirers have also frequently used other emojis when tweeting about the actor. Really?' I looked in the mirror, I checked myself out.

'But to be honest, it was just a nice feeling. "It was a nice surprise - an ego boost for sure", Idris told People in his cover story.

"Being witness to the birth of my children is the biggest and best thing ever", says Elba, who has a 16-year-old daughter, Isan, and a 4-year-old son, Winston (both from previous relationships).

"Thank you [People] and all the fans for naming me [Sexiest Man Alive]..."

He also took the opportunity to encourage his followers to vote in the upcoming United States midterm elections. "Your vote can make a difference!"

Despite his new title, the actor, who was tipped earlier this year to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond, told People he went through an awkward phase before hitting his stride. This being said, as you can see when our own Eoghan Doherty got to chat to the man himself, it's impossible not to love Idris Elba. "And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, okay?"

"But again, as soon as I could grow a mustache, I was the coolest kid on the block", he added. "Grew a mustache, had some muscles, bonkers".
