People have known it forever, but People only just officially declared it now: Idris Elba is the sexiest man alive.

The 46-year-old actor was announced as this year's title holder during The Tonight Show on Monday (November 5) in New York City. "I'm honored and thankful", he said. "Really?" Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. I was like, "Yeah, you are kind of sexy today". "It was a nice surprise - an ego boost for sure".

And for some fans, they were just glad last year's victor, Blake Shelton, didn't take home the title again.

Now, after months of anticipation the magazine finally has revealed this year's victor is British actor Idris Elba.

But if Idris lands the role, he won't be the first 007 actor to take People's accolade, with Pierce Brosnan being named Sexiest Man for 2001.

'Life isn't about thinking about what you should have done, ' explained Idris. "You might as well do it to your heart's content".
