The search is on for Britain's Sexiest Farmer - and you can help.
More than 300 people entered the competition run by Farmers Weekly magazine. Those hundreds of entries have been whittled down to just 10 shortlisted finalists with the help of celebrity judge Gok Wan.
He said: "I've seen a few hot country people in my time, but these guys took my breath away. There was a fantastic range of people from all sectors of farming - some were dressed up, some were in boilersuits, quite a few were in wellies and one or two were in not very much at all - which is of course my preference."
The 10 finalists are being put forward to a public vote to decide which man and which woman wins the title of Britain's Sexiest Farmer. Cast your vote at
www.fwi.co.uk/sexyfarmer between 17 and 24 January. 1 of 10 Alex Royall: Alex, from Norfolk, is a multi-tasking farm hand for a large farming estate where he works across a wide range of enterprises including beef, sheep and potatoes. He's been working on farms since he left school at the age of 16 and he's saving up to one day start-up his own livestock enterprise. Outside of work, the 28-year-old is a dab-hand in the kitchen and is a true hunter-gatherer shooting his supper, baking his own bread and growing his own veg. His fiancé says: "He's a devilishly handsome and strapping fellow who loves everything and anything to do with the countryside."

Kate Lywood: Kate manages 300-plus cows on the family's farm in Sussex. The 25-year-old former Harper Adams student was nominated by a former employee because she has such passion for the industry and is a great role model for women in farming. Kate and her family have plans to expand the herd, install a new parlour and put up new buildings. "It's going to be very busy," she says. "Farmers sometimes have this image among the general public of being miserable, but we have a great sense of humour and like to have a laugh." Hugh Morrison: Son of a farm manager and now a tenant farmer with his wife, 40-year-old Hugh looks after 600 breeding ewes and manages 950 acres of arable land in Wiltshire. When he's not farming or assisting with his two children's homework, the 40-year-old can be found surfing and snorkelling along the coast. And if you like a man in uniform then it might surprise you to learn that he spent eight years as a fireman! His wife reckons he's "passionate about farming, a fantastic husband and, as his children say, the best Dad ever". Sarah Pick: A farmer's daughter from Yorkshire, 25-year-old Sarah works on the Farm Business Survey at Askham Bryan College, plus is doing a masters in sustainable agriculture in her spare time. She even finds time to help out on the family farm with the pedigree Simmental cattle. Her sister Fran, who nominated her, says: "She has a radiant smile that brightens up the darkest winter days and deep brown eyes that would melt any farmer's heart! She is an active member of Selby YFC and takes part in every activity from stock judging to partying at the AGM. Her bright and bubbly personality radiates whether in her gladrags or gumboots! Ben Bull: Ben's studying a degree in Agriculture at Harper Adams University and plans to return home to the family arable and beef farm in Hampshire. When he's not at home on the farm or studying, Ben spends time working out in the gym and is a keen rugby player, representing his county team. The 21-year-old wants to visit Australia to see large-scale farming businesses (but he might have to master his fear of spiders first!) His girlfriend says: "He is definitely sexy enough to win this competition!" Alice Dyer: Final-year Royal Agricultural University student Alice plans to work in Australia for a spell after graduating – but ultimately would like to work in agricultural journalism, have her own small farm and start a charity helping farmers in developing countries. "I enjoy horse riding and am very devoted to my two terriers, Hattie and Ted," says Alice, who's from Kent. Her housemates describe her as "a normal girl with high aspirations" and her boyfriend Daniel (who nominated her) says: "Her personality matches her looks and I can't think of anyone better to be sat in a tractor all day with." Graeme Moon: Somerset-based Graeme was once a teacher and professional photographer, but six years ago decided to make the move back to the family farm. He now works with his dad and brothers on the beef and pig farm, where he'll turn his hand to most challenges. Outside of work, the 31-year-old is a dad to a young son and daughter, and is a keen climber and cyclist. Despite this all-round action-man persona, he has a weakness for soppy films. His wife says: "He is an inspiration to his son who loves nothing more than driving a tractor with his daddy." Judi James: Judi, a 53-year-old single mum from Dorset, works on a farm and is also establishing her own veal business. She won the UK Worker of the Year 2013 competition. "You can either sit back and accept your lot, or you can strive for more," says Judi. "You only get one life, you've got to grasp it. It doesn't matter how old you are – there are lots of opportunities, especially if you think outside the box. Here's to all us mature lady farmers!" Lloyd Duke: Lloyd grew up on the family dairy farm, but four years ago decided to take on his own 300 acre dairy farm tenancy. The 23-year-old hopes one day to buy a farm of his own. He's passionate about family and, in the future, wants his children to grow up on a dairy farm like he did. Outside of work, he is a semi-professional rugby player for the Cornish All Blacks. "I'm nominating Lloyd because he is a hard working, forward-thinking young farmer with a real passion for agriculture," says his girlfriend Sami. Rachel Churches: Nominated by mum and dad, Jenny and Michael, 18-year-old Rachel is a farmer's daughter from Somerset, who's in her final year at Hartpury College. "She's full of life and always up for a laugh," say her parents. "She's not scared of getting her hands dirty, and is up for anything including welding, milking, and especially tractor driving, doing grain/silage and maize hauling. Rachel is a keen member of Somerset Young Farmers (she loves a good party!) and feels strongly about promoting the farming industry." She hopes to go travelling after she finishes college, hopefully working on a few farms in New Zealand.
