Looks like stripping off in 'Magic Mike' has done the trick for Channing Tatum as the hunk has been named 2012's People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive.

The 32 year-old hunk has knocked last year's winner, 'The Hangover' hottie Bradley Cooper off the top spot, to take the covetted title.

On hearing the news 'The Vow' star admitted he was pretty surprised, he told the magazine: "My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me,'"

"I told Jenna after we'd been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they'd gotten skunked."

The actor married Jenna Dewan-Tatum three years ago and revealed she's pretty excited about her hunky hubbies new title.

"Yeah, she calls me [the Sexiest Man Alive] now," he added.

But he's not just sexy, Jenna reckons his emotional too: "People know him to be fun and sexy, but they don't know how emotionally deep and spiritually open he is,"

"He is such an open-hearted person; what you see is what you get."

As long as his shirt is open too we don't mind! To celebrate Channing's win, let's look back at some of People's past Sexiest Men!
