UK’s sexist politicians named as Brits fawn over Reform chief and Tory

Reform UK leader Nigel Farage and ex-Conservative Home Secretary Suella Braverman have been crowned the UK’s sexiest politicians.

According to a poll by, the leading dating site for married individuals, the Tories outshone Labour as the overall sexiest party.

In the run-up to the general election, members of the site were asked to vote for the politician they found most attractive. In an unexpected turn of events, the ever-polarising Nigel Farage, leader of Reform UK, secured the top spot with 23% of the female vote.

Hot on his trail was the rugged Conservative MP Johnny Mercer, who clinched second place with 18% of the votes. Labour leader Keir Starmer wasn’t far behind, garnering 16% of the vote, followed surprisingly by Jacob Rees-Mogg, whose old-world charm seems to be setting hearts racing . . . for some reason.

Conservative Ben Everett, who faced criticism for posting ‘thirst trap’ photos on Instagram last November, made it into the top five with 9% of the vote. Unfortunately for Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, his popularity appears to have waned since 2020 when he topped the poll, this year securing just 3% of the vote.

In a surprising turn of events, the sexiest female politician, according to men, is Conservative Suella Braverman, who bagged 21% of the votes. Hot on her heels is Labour’s Rosena Allin-Khan with 19%. Conservative Esther McVey rounded off the top three with 15% of the vote.

Overall, the Tories emerged as the winners, taking 51% of the total vote share across both male and female categories, making them the sexiest party, compared to a disappointing 28.5% for Labour.

Jessica Leoni, sex and relationships expert at, commented, “The latest poll on the UK’s sexiest people in politics has thrown a bit of a curveball with Nigel Farage and Suella Braverman crowned the reigning hotties.

“When it comes to what makes politicians sexy, it’s not just about looks it’s about swagger, confidence, and a dash of power that gets the heart racing. Nigel Farage, with his unapologetic, cheeky grin and devil-may-care attitude, seems to channel that bad boy charm women can’t resist and his appearance on ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’ last year clearly worked wonders for his image.

“Meanwhile, Suella Braverman’s poised, no-nonsense demeanour exudes a fierce passion and authority that’s seemingly undeniably attractive for a lot of men. Politics isn’t just about policies it’s also a stage where charisma shines, and let’s face it, a little bit of controversy adds a spark of sexual intrigue too.”
