Looks like she’s had the last laugh.
Rachel Stevens has been revealed as FHM’s Sexiest Woman Of All Time despite never topping the list in its 20 years.
The 36-year-old S Club 7 star emerged the most popular of the magazine’s 2,000 entrants from over the years after past placements and total votes cast were analyzed.
Yes, it is officially a statistc fact that Rachel is very sexy.
Rachel previously ranked in second place in 2001, 2002, and 2004 and has appeared on the list a total of 11 times.
Instead of celebrating with a party (because we all know there aint not party like an S Club party), Rachel posed for a brand new shoot for the magazine.
One of the racy snaps sees Rachel posing in a see through negligée while another shows her lying seductively in bed.
Dare we say it, she looks the best we’ve ever seen her.
Speaking about the accolade, Rachel, who gave birth to her second child two months ago, admitted she was flattered.
She said: “To win this award feels absolutely amazing. It’s so flattering to think that people think of me that way. It’s brilliant.
“The first cover I shot in 2000 was really exciting, because at that time we were really young – I was 22 – and we were so used to being all kiddy and sweet and nice.
“It was an opportunity to be a bit more grown up, to be more womanly and sexy.”
Congratulations on your super duper sexiness Rachel!
The full top 20 is revealed in the July edition of FHM, and features a poster of Rachel and more from her photoshoot at www.fhm.com/rachel.
