Ac­tor Idris Elba and Count­down’s Rachel Ri­ley top bot­toms poll

The Scotsman - - Around Scotland - By FRANCESCA GOSLING

Ac­tor Idris Elba has been named 2017 male Rear of the Year, fend­ing off com­pe­ti­tion from Prince Harry and Harry Styles to take the top spot.

The Luther star was voted best male celebrity bot­tom in the annual con­test, tak­ing the cov­eted ti­tle from last year’s win­ner and fel­low ac­tor, Tom Hid­dle­ston.

Prince Harry took sec­ond place, fol­lowed by 1997 win­ner Gary Bar­low in third, for­mer One Di­rec­tion singer Styles in fourth, and Fifty Shades Of Grey star Jamie Dor­nan in fifth.

Mean­while, the ti­tle of best fe­male rear was won by Count- 0 Idris Elba’s toned physique helped him win the ti­tle down pre­sen­ter Rachel Ri­ley, 31, tak­ing the ba­ton from Hollyoaks star, Jen­nifer Met­calfe.

In a line-up dom­i­nated by TV pre­sen­ters, Ri­ley beat War and Peace star Lily James, who was sec­ond, plus Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent judge Ale­sha Dixon in third po­si­tion, This Morn­ing pre­sen­ter Holly Wil­loughby in fourth po­si­tion, and pre­vi­ous twotime win­ner, Carol Vor­der­man, in fifth.

Award or­gan­iser Tony Ed­wards said cy­cling and fit­ness en­thu­si­ast Ri­ley’s bot­tom “marked a con­trast to the ex­ag­ger­ated, fake, cos­metic look, re­cently im­ported from the US, which is un­likely to win any style awards in the UK”. And he said of Elba: “Idris is also a kick boxer which, along with his other work­outs, has en­sured a par­tic­u­larly well-toned, firm rear.”
