Irish men are the world’s sexiest, according to a survey of thousands of jet-setting women.

In a poll of 66,000 of single American women who use MissTravel.com, as many as 8,000 said that Irish men are the sexiest.

Around half of the females who took said they were turned on by Irish men said their accent influenced their choice, according to the Irish Times.

And while the website didn't look into which celebrities may have caused women to choose Irish men, 50 Shades of Grey actor Jamie Dornan may well have a part to play.

Meanwhile, a survey of 44,873 men by the website which matches travellers, saw Armenian women topping the sexiest nationality list. The outcome is likely down to the fact that reality TV star Kim Kardashian and her sisters are of Armenian descent.
