British actress Helen Mirren has been voted Britain's number one modern day sex goddess by readers of EROTIC REVIEW.

The 58-year-old screen veteran beat out the likes of Dolly Parton, model Sophie Dahl and celebrity cook Nigella Lawson to clinch the honour - but Mirren admits she's never heard of the publication.

On hearing about the honour during a TV interview in America yesterday morning (11DEC03), she enquired, "Who are they? I want to meet these people.

"I think they're a load of bus drivers from Lower Sudbury (England)!"
