1 of 1 Example

Example has been crowned Britain's coolest man beating out David Beckham, Idris Elba and Arctic Monkey's frontman Alex Turner.

The Kickstarts hitmaker was praised by Zoo magazine for his straight-talking attitude and down-to-earth personality.

Commenting on the accolade Example said, "I haven't won an award for anything, so it might as well be the best award in the country. I've been around in this game for eight years and I'm on my fifth album, and I've toured the world, and had 19 top 40s, and I've never been nominated or won f*** all. So it's just great this could be the first one."

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom star Idris Elba came second in the poll and snooker player Ronnie O'Sullivan came in at third. Prince Harry and Benedict Cumberbatch filled out the top five, coming in at fourth and fifth place respectively.
