EXCLUSIVE! Downton hottie Hugh Bonneville: “I enjoy being one of heat’s weird crushes!”

He’s the dashing, distinguished Earl of Grantham on Downton Abbey, so it’s no surprise that Hugh Bonneville has become something of a sex symbol for certain ladies – cementing his status as an unlikely heartthrob by appearing on heat’s weird crush poll.

Catching up with Hugh, 49, at last week’s Olivier Awards, sponsored by Mastercard, where was co-host alongside Sheridan Smith he told us what he really thought about his No 23 placing on our list of unorthodox hotties.

He laughed: “I’m not sure if it’s a compliment or not. Being a weird crush…well if it’s the best recognition I can get then I’ll take it! I'll enjoy it while I can."

We reassured Hugh it was, like, the biggest honour ever appearing on our Weird Crush Poll - topped in the past by Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond plus this year's winner Russell Howard - but he joked: “I’d like to be on the real sexiest list next time please.”

Yes, sir!
