Jake Wood feels "honoured" to beat Ed Sheeran to be named the UK's top Weird Crush for the second year in a row
Jake Wood is "honoured" to be named the UK's top Weird Crush for the second year in a row.
The 'EastEnders' star has been handed the award in heat magazine's annual poll, ahead of the likes of Ed Sheeran and Greg Davies.
Jake said: "I must be the weirdest crush in the history of weird crushes. I'm quite honoured. Last year I was delighted, and this year I'm even more bowled over. Lost for words.
"I must be slightly weirder then Ed [Sheeran] and that's a great honour to me. I'm obviously the hottest weirdest ginger."
When the 43-year-old actor - who is currently taking a hiatus from the BBC One soap - triumphed in the poll last year, he admitted it was the "award [he] wanted to win more than any other".
He shared at the time: "I'm absolutely honoured. It's the award I wanted to win more than any other. I'm so happy I won.
"Thank you to the people that voted for me. I'm doing it for the weird crushes all over the world. Ginger, tall, freaky looking guys with a sexy glint in their eyes, that's me."
