|Britney dropped from sexiest women list
[ 2006-04-12 09:23 ]
Britney Spears is losing her sex
appeal. The 24-year-old singer is set to drop out of FHM's
100 sexiest women list, published in the British edition of the men's
magazine later this year.
Readers of the publication have so far put Welsh singer Charlotte
Church , Kate Beckinsale and Tom Cruise's
pregnant fiancée Katie Holmes ahead of the 2004 winner.
FHM editor Ross Brown admits it's hard to believe Britney has fallen so
far. He is quoted in Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: "A couple of
years ago FHM readers couldn't get enough of Britney, and they unanimously
agreed that she was by far the sexiest woman on the planet.
"I can only guess that a
raft of less-than-flattering photographs and her
general disappearance from our TVs and radios have left readers under the
impression that Britney's lost her sex appeal."
The singer came 6th in last year's poll, but is down in 120th
place so far, needing an extra 20 000 votes just to break into the top
Britney - who has a baby son Sean Preston - has struggled to lose her
pregnancy weight, and has been snapped in a number of ill fitting outfits
since giving birth in September.
There is also speculation that she is expecting her second child
husband Kevin Federline.
