What a year. In the weeks, months and seasons since we first made the call for girls nationwide to remove their outer garments and email us their jpegs, no fewer than 13,892 ladies have obliged. The purpose-built inbox, closely guarded by one much-envied FHM staffer, bore witness to a new record number of hopefuls, all bidding to become 2009’s High Street Honey champ.

But in the end, there could only ever be one winner. Her name? Charlotte Thomson, a former photographic assistant from Truro, Cornwall, and now officially Britain’s hottest girl next door. “I still can’t take it in,” giggles the 21-year-old. “The whole competition has been incredible. I never expected to get in the Top 10, let alone win. It’s surreal. I guess I just have to thank my fans.”

And if Charlotte’s fans (which, statistically, means you) enjoyed meeting Charlotte first time out, then buckle up – things are about to get much, much better. Landing the Honeys crown means Charlotte will present FHM Presents The 100 Sexiest Videos Ever on Kiss TV, alongside Dizzee Rascal. Tune in on Saturday, May 30 at 4pm (Sky 361, Virgin 336) to see Charlotte's TV debut.


For the full interview with Charlotte, don't miss the July issue of FHM. You can subscribe today for the ludicrously great price of £15. For the whole year. Head here to sign on!
