Which 46-year old actor has been named PEOPLE's Sexiest man alive?

Yep. That would be Idris Elba!

British heartthrob Idris Elba has been given the honour of being crowned the Sexiest Man Alive for 2018 thanks to People magazine.

The 46-year old actor has already received an OBE from the Queen for his services to drama AND been pipped as the next James Bond, and now he has 'sexiest man alive' to add to his resume. 

“I was like, ‘Come on, no way. Really?'” the actor tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. I was like, ‘Yeah, you are kind of sexy today.’ But to be honest, it was just a nice feeling. It was a nice surprise — an ego boost for sure.”

Elba has starred in many movies, including The Dark Tower with Matthew McConaughey and most recently, Avengers: Infinity War. 

Check out the video below when talk show host, Jimmy Fallon, gave him the good news!
