OSCAR winner Jennifer Lawrence is officially the sexiest woman on the planet after she topped FHM magazine's annual list.

The Hunger Games star jumped to the number one spot in the poll and has taken over from last year's winner Mila Kunis, who has now slipped to sixth place.

Former Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan has been listed in second spot.

Chart-topper Rihanna has slipped one place to three and model Emily Ratajkowski, who appeared naked in Robin Thicke's video for his single Blurred Lines, is the highest new entry at number four.

And the broadcaster and food writer Nigella Lawson made her debut on the list at number 21.

At 54, she is the oldest person on the list.

Irish females to grace the list in the past include Georgia Salpa who listed 10th in the overall 100 sexiest.

FHM produced a Sexiest Irish girls on the Emerald Isle list for St Patrick's day this year and noted MTV host Laura Whitmore, Saturday's singer Una Foden, model Nadia Forde and Miss Ireland Aoife Walsh.

Lawrence (23), who dates British actor Nicholas Hoult, has become a huge star on the back of her role as Katniss in the Hunger Games series, and landed a best actress Oscar last year for Silver Linings Playbook.

Dan Jude, the editor of the FHM 100 Sexiest supplement, said that men have fallen in love with Jennifer's kooky charm.

"She's run away with the title this year," he said.

"Not only is she the most in-demand actress on the planet, but men the world over have fallen in love with her kooky charm."
