Tulisa has beaten Cheryl Cole and Rihanna to be crowned winner of FHM's Sexiest Woman in the World.
Former N-Dubz singer judge Tulisa has been voted the world's Sexiest Woman according to men's magazine FHM.
Tulisa, whose debut solo single 'Young' went to no1 in the iTunes chart this week, said: "Thank you so much for voting for me. It's a true honour and definitely a lovely confidence boost.
"I'm proud of me and I am who I am. I know that I'm marmite and I wouldn't wanna be anything less or anything more, I'm just myself."
Tulisa hit the headlines back in March when a sex tape leaked online - and she was forced to admit it contained footage of her.

But it appears the flurry of publicity has been no bad thing for her, as she pipped American stars Katy Perry, Megan Fox and Mila Kunis to the coveted award.
She added: "I believe in embracing being sexy but I'm not one to agree with stripping off for the cameras, I like to be more subtle than that as these shots show. This is an award that will stay on the mantelpiece probably for the rest of my life."
Big Brother star Georgia Salpa was this year's highest new entry - going straight in at number five.
She said: "People always talk about the 100 Sexiest - girls as well - and to think that you'd actually be in it...! I like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, she's amazing, I love her and Megan Fox too, I think she's really hot."
