Robert Pattinson has maintained his place as the world's sexiest man - despite being publicly humiliated over Kristen Stewart's cheating scandal.

The Twilight actor, 26, who is said to be rekindling his relationship with co-star Kristen, 22, following her admission that she had an affair with her Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, has won the accolade for the fourth year running.
