Chef Gordon Ramsay has been voted the most admired man, according to a poll in men's magazine Esquire.

Professor Stephen Hawking, TV survival expert Ray Mears, actor Daniel Craig and comedy star Ricky Gervais also feature in the survey.

Babyshambles singer Pete Doherty is the least admired man, followed by TV presenter Russell Brand and footballer David Beckham.

Around 500 men took part in the study, which will feature in Monday's edition.

Actress Scarlett Johansson was voted the most popular woman to get married to, with pop star Kylie Minogue following in second place.

Sienna Miller, Kirsty Gallacher and Angelina Jolie also featured in the list.

The poll also revealed that almost half the participants, were more concerned about global warming than the threat of terrorism or the state of the economy.

While football is the favourite sport of 63% of those surveyed, more men fantasise about having a number one album than they do about playing in an FA Cup final.

The poll also found that men were more interested in doing a job they love than the size of their pay cheques.
