It’s official: Noel Gallagher, Robbie Williams and Plan B are amongst the coolest men in Britain!
Readers of ZOO Magazine voted in their thousands in the publication’s annual ‘Britain’s Coolest Man’ poll with the results being unveiled today.
Former Oasis guitarist/songwriter is the highest ranked music star at number 11 ahead of Robbie Williams in 16th spot. Rapper turned soul singer and movie star Plan B sneaked in at number 20.
However, they were all trumped by boxer Carl Froch who stormed in at number one ahead of Prince Harry and Hollywood actor Tom Hardy.
35-year-old Froch commented: “It’s an honour and a privilege! I’m surprised Jason Statham didn’t win, though.
“I can see why Prince Harry is runner-up. He got rumbled for stripping off and having a laugh in Vegas recently, but who cares? He’s a soldier, puts his time in and lads take to him.”
ZOO Editor Damien McSorley added: “Carl Froch is well worthy of the title, Britain's Coolest Man 2013, having elevated himself to become Britain's leading boxer.
“Carl is a people's champion; a home-grown, self-made success story, who remains down-to-earth, outspoken and close to his Nottingham roots.”

1. Carl Froch
2. Prince Harry
