Brace yourself, Bridget! According to destination dating website, Irish men are the world's sexiest nationality.

The website's 2015 Sexiest Nationalities survey, which it says is based on the dating preferences of 66,309 American women, saw Irish men claim top spot.

The result, which says is "potentially due to the amount of ladies lusting after Jamie Dornan, the star of 50 Shades of Grey" (below), saw the Irish pip Italian, Spanish and several other nationalities to the post.

It helpfully lists examples of dishy national treasures after each result.

Sexiest Nationalities for Men:

  1. Irish (Jamie Dornan, Colin Farrell)
  2. Australian (Chris and Liam Hemsworth)
  3. Pakistani (Zayn Malik)
  4. American (Denzel Washington, Justin Timberlake)
  5. English (Charlie Hunnam, David Beckham)
  6. Scottish (Calvin Harris)
  7. Italian (Joe Manganiello)
  8. Nigerian (Tinie Tempah)
  9. Danish (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau)
  10. Spanish (Gerard Pique) is an online dating website for travelers.

It specialises in matching "generous travelers who hate to travel alone" with "attractive travelers who would love the opportunity to travel the world for free".

As well as matchmaking, the site allows 'Generous' members the ability to gift frequent flyer points to 'Attractive' members... "hence gifting them the gift of travel".

The rest may be left to your imagination.

Sadly, the charms of Irish women were overlooked.

Based on the dating preferences of 44,873 American men, the survey found the sexiest nationalities to be as follows...

Sexiest Nationalities for Women:

  • Armenian (Kim Kardashian)
  • Barbadian/Bajan (Rihanna)
  • American (Beyonce, Kendall Jenner)
  • Colombian (Shakira, Sofia Vergara)
  • English (Rosie Huntington-Whitely)
  • Australian (Margot Robbie, Elle Macpherson)
  • Brazilian (Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio)
  • Filipina (Nicole Scherzinger, Vanessa Hudgens)
  • Bulgarian (Nina Dobrev)
  • Lebanese (Amal Clooney)

This isn't the first time Irish men have been voted the world's sexiest.

According to a Sex and Travel survey by HostelBookers last year, 78pc of women found Irish men to be the 'hottest nationality' on holidays, pipping Australian, British, Canadian and even Italians in their Speedos to the post.
