David Gandy will never be happy with his body.

The hunky model is regarded as one of the world's sexiest men but says he's always been critical of the way he looks and doesn't have much self-confidence.

He said: "I don't particularly like much of my body. I'm very critical of myself. I think I'm pretty much a perfectionist in anything I do so I'm never going to be happy. I'm not saying it's a good thing, believe me. People can criticise me and try to being me down but I tell them, 'You can't be as hard on me as I am on myself, so don't even try.' "

Despite making his name after appearing in a Dolce And Gabbana advert for their fragrance Light Blue, David says he's pleased he's now being accepted for more than just his looks.

David - who is currently dating The Saturdays star Mollie King - told attitude magazine: "I'm not just a model now. We have gone beyond that. There are better-looking guys than me, there are more intelligent guys than me, but they seem to have accepted the level that they got to and then said, 'That's it.' And I've always queried that and asked why? Why can't you go beyond that? And, well, here we are now. We're doing it."
