Melissa TheuriauReaders of UK tabloid The Sun have voted French newsreader Melissa Theuriau "YouTube's hottest babe EVER" after excerpts of the foxy Gallic minx's news broadcasts proved a huge online hit.

Theuriau, 28, picked up 72 per cent of the 3,000 votes, adding the tabloid "Phwooarr!" honour to her heaving trophy cabinet which already houses Empire Magazine's "World's Sexiest News Anchor".

Theuriau's popularity skyrocketed last year after topless beach snaps of her appeared in a French magazine, and subsequently across cyberspace. The Sun notes she is currently presenter of a "news magazine show called Forbidden Zone" and, crucially, single. ®
