Fans of Stanley Tucci are in uproar after Prince William was voted the “world’s sexiest bald man” in a new poll.

On Saturday (27 March), The Sun reported a highly scientific* survey from cosmetic surgery specialists Longevita, who used Google to find out how many times the royal had been called “sexy” on various blogs and articles.

The results apparently showed that Prince William had been called “sexy” around 17.6 million times, more than any other famous bald man.

A now-viral tweet from writer Bolu Babalola, author of the Sunday Times bestseller Love in Colour, is among the responses to the study pointing out that Tucci is, for many, a worthier winner.

Others backed up Babalola, with one commenting: “Someone explain to me how Prince William is the hottest bald man alive when Shemar Moore and Stanley Tucci exist?”

“Look, regardless of your opinion of the royal family, I think we can ALL agree that this is Stanley Tucci erasure and it shall not stand,” journalist Ellie Hall wrote.

Tucci, who has starred in multiple award-winning films, TV shows and plays, delighted fans at the start of the pandemic by sharing a cocktail-making tutorial on social media.

The video went viral on social media in April last year, sparking various memes and a number of articles, including one inThe Guardian that asked: “Why is Stanley Tucci making a negroni so hot?”

“They said it could never be done, but Stanley Tucci has managed to unite that fickle, forever bickering thing called the internet, and with an act so mundane we can only marvel at his bald, bespectacled power,” wrote journalist Max Benwell.
