Pop singer Britney Spears has fallen out of the list of the World's 100 Sexiest Women, after being in the top ten for the last two years.

The 24-year-old star failed to make the top 100 in the annual FHM poll, after topping the list in 2004 and being placed sixth last year.

FHM editor Ross Brown said: "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."

Spears will need an estimated 20,000 votes to make it back into the top 100 of the list.
