Example - Example named as Britain's Coolest Man

Example has been named Britain's Coolest Man 2014.

The 'Kickstarts' rapper beat a number of celebrities including David Beckham, Idris Elba and Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner to the title, after fans praised his straight talking attitude and his down-to-earth personality in the annual poll conducted by Zoo magazine.

Example said: ''I haven't won an award for anything, so it might as well be the best award in the country. I've been around in this game for eight years and I'm on my fifth album, and I've toured the world, and had 19 top 40s, and I've never been nominated or won f**k all. So it's just great this could be the first one.''

Hot on the 31-year-old rapper's heels was Idris Elba - who received praise last year for his starring role in 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom - and British snooker player Ronnie O'Sullivan, placing second and third respectively.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry was knocked down to fourth place, after coming second last year, while 'Sherlock' actor Benedict Cumberbatch stole a spot in the top five.

Last year's winner, Carl Froch, failed to make the top 20.
