Actor Henry Cavill

London - Handsome Man of Steel star Henry Cavill, 30, has been named the celebrity women would most like to have a holiday romance with.

Almost half of women polled plumped for the currently single superhero, while David Beckham, 38, took second place with 42 percent of the vote.

Scottish actor Gerard Butler, 43, completed the top three, racking up a respectable 33 percent of the vote.

Cavill is preparing to reprise his role as Superman opposite Ben Affleck, who, it was revealed will take the role of Batman.

Asked how he felt about the development by BBC presenter Kevin Camplin, Cavill apparently declared that he was “more than delighted” to star opposite the Argo actor.

Although few can boast the extraterrestrial powers (and flying technique) of Superman, Cavill did have some impressive rivals to see off in the poll.

The research, which was conducted by holiday website, asked 1 000 British women aged between 18 and 35 for their top three celebrity men.

Others to make the top 10 included Only God Forgives actor Ryan Gosling, 32, One Direction singer Harry Styles and diver Tom Daley, both 19.

Styles took sixth place with 28 percent of the vote, just ahead of Prince Harry, 28, who collected an impressive 27 percent.

The two Harrys were followed by Bond star Daniel Craig, 45, with 20 percent, Twilight actor Robert Pattinson, 27, with 16 percent and Black Eyed Peas singer Will.I.Am, 38, with 10 percent. – Daily Mail
