in Arnold, Nottingham.
He has been single for four months.
Haresh says the most romantic thing he's ever done is to fly
to see a woman in another country.
Haresh is placed among professional TV artistes from Brookside,
professional rugby and football players in the top 20 hottest
version of this page.
Haresh Sood, 26, from Arnold, has been named as
one of Britain's hottest dates.
He found out that he'd made it into the pages of a national glossy
women's magazine via a text from a friend and since then he's been
inundated with e-mails from around the globe.
Alan Clifford spoke to Haresh about sending women wobbly at the
What's it like to be classed as hot?
It feels very nice... very flattering. It was embarrassing to
start with. I'm still in shock really. It's all got blown up into
something so big.
How did you get involved?
My sister nominated me in March and all I had to do is fill
out this questionnaire answering all these things.
How did you hear about being in the top 20?
I got a text message from my friend the other day saying 'I hear
you seduce women with chocolates and strawberry cake.' And I thought
this sounded really familiar and she said check out the New Woman
magazine. Since then it has been an ongoing thing.
I'm not a celebrity I'm just a normal person from Arnold.
Have you had much media attention?
The funniest thing to come from it has been I've been getting all
these e-mails from girls in India because it has been on the international
press. Headline news as 'Indian makes it into Britain's top 20 men'.
It's just so funny. My e-mail has now been blocked.
I don't know how to handle this kind of thing. It's really weird.
I'm not going to forget the fact that I am just a normal person
from Arnold in Nottingham - a country boy - and that I started at
BBC Radio Nottingham with Kaval Vaseer.
Have you looked at your rivals?
They're good looking guys. Nice guys.
Haresh features in the November issue of New Woman
magazine in their 20 'hot men you can date' feature.
Haresh works as a Development Officer for the British
Council of Disabled People.
He is also an artiste, model and singer, enjoys swimming, wine tasting

law in Higher European Legal Studies with Spanish and French and
studied abroad for almost two and a half years on the courses with

Kate Turner from New Woman magazine says:
"We run the 'Hot Men' feature every month and look for single
men who stand out in both personality and looks."
"Haresh fitted the bill - he has wide ranging interests, was
very honest in his answers and has great cheekbones!"
