Men's magazine FHM just released the annual list of their readership's most voted-upon sexiest women in the world, and the compilation is full of familiar faces.


Superstars Kate Upton, Kendall Jenner, Jennifer Lawrence and Margot Robbie are all in the top 10, but Michelle Keegan, the woman bequeathed the official title of FHM's Sexiest Woman in the World 2015, left us scratching our heads a little. Not because she isn't deserving (we feel that ranking sexiness is pretty arbitrary); we just hadn't really heard much about Keegan before.

Here are a few things to know about FHM's No. 1.

1. She is actually very famous


Just because Keegan isn't particularly well known in the United States doesn't mean she's isn't a mega-celeb elsewhere. The actress was already on the British long-running soap Coronation Street from 2008 to 2014 before moving on to the British television drama, Ordinary Lies, in 2015.

2. She's workin' the internet


With 1.6 million Instagram followers and nearly 3 million followers on Twitter, Keegan is no social media slouch.

3. She's engaged to a fellow entertainer


Keegan is set to marry British TV presenter Mark Wright sometime in the near future, and Wright took to Twitter to make sure everyone knew it after Keegan was given her recent title.

4. She has a clothing line


Like Sofía Vergara and Jennifer Lopez, Keegan has her own fashion line. The actress has a collection with Lipsy London, a popular British brand of women's clothing.

5. She's down to cross the pond

"I would absolutely love to get a job in America if the right role came up," Keegan said to Britain's Express when asked if she would ever move to Los Angeles. "You never know what the future holds."

6. She has a girl crush on Jessica Alba

"She's natural and gorgeous and she doesn't wear too much makeup or anything like that," Keegan said of Alba to British Cosmo in March. "And she's a really good mum as well. I follow her on Instagram and she's always talking about her kids and her husband. So, yeah, she's definitely up there."

7. She has her own insecurities


Even the woman deemed one of the sexiest people in the world has doubts about herself. "I'm like every girl," Keegan said to Express. "I look in the mirror and will always see something I'm not quite happy with. We all have hang-ups and I'm no different."
