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 knees...

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.

Haresh Sood

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.

What now?
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 and foreign languages and read law with Italian, and a masters of law in Higher European Legal Studies with Spanish and French and studied abroad for almost two and a half years on the courses with the University of Leicester in Spain, France, Italy and Australia.

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!"
