Prince Harry named World's Most Eligible Bachelor

Britain's Prince Harry has been named the World's Most Eligible Bachelor 2016.

The 31-year-old royal has followed in the footsteps of George Clooney, who had taken the top spot for three years' running prior to his marriage last year to lawyer Amal Alamuddin, after he was voted the most desirable single man in a new poll carried out by Crown Clinic in Manchester.

Hair transplant surgeon, Asim Shahmalak, from Crown Clinic said: "It's no surprise that Prince Harry is the world's most eligible bachelor - we all love him because he is a fun guy who doesn't take life too seriously. He is also seriously handsome, particularly since growing his ginger beard."

Sinking into second was former One Direction star Zayn Malik, 22, while hunky Leonardo DiCaprio, 41, managed to climb into third, just ahead of Ed Sheeran, 24, in fourth.

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, 38 - who previously dated supermodel Lily Cole - was the highest place businessman as he came in at fifth, while Jake Gyllenhaal, 34, came sixth.

Seventh place went to Michael Fassbender, 34, as Henry Cavill, 32, managed to swipe the eighth position on the list.

Zayn's former band mate Harry Styles, 21, who is known for being a bit of a ladies' man, surprisingly dropped into ninth place, while James Franco, 37, rounded off the list in tenth.

The results were gathered from a poll of 1,000 women who were asked by Britain's leading hair transplant centre to rank the five most important characteristics - apart from being single - when assessing a bachelor's eligibility.

The World's Top 10 Bachelors for 2016 are as follows;

1) Prince Harry

2) Zayn Malik

3) Leonardo DiCaprio

4) Ed Sheeran

5) Jack Dorsey

6) Jake Gyllenhaal
