TOP Gear host Jeremy Clarkson was yesterday named the man other blokes most admire.
Witty Jeremy, 48, known for his no nonsense approach to political correctness, beat tough guy actor Ray Winstone, 51, as the ultimate man’s man in a new poll.
Third was chef Gordon Ramsay, 41, followed by Apprentice boss Sir Alan Sugar, 61, and movie legend Clint Eastwood, 78.
The rest of the top ten were Welsh boxing sensation Joe Calzaghe, 36, Die Hard actor Bruce Willis, 53, comic Peter Kay, 35, footballer David Beckham, 33, and The Office creator Ricky Gervais, 47.
Sun columnist Jeremy greeted the win with a dig at his Top Gear co-star, saying: “This is brilliant news. James May will be very jealous.”
Jon Dixon of XXX Mints, which carried out the poll of 4,000 men, said Jeremy’s “gobby attitude” was popular.
He added: “Jeremy was the clear winner.
“He’s confident, knowledgeable and just a little bit arrogant, which are traits that men clearly admire in other men.”
