Channing Tatum has been crowned People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2012.

The actor, who got his kit off for stripper movie Magic Mike, has taken the title from last year's winner Bradley Cooper - with Tatum stating he is shocked to have beaten the likes of David Beckham and Ryan Gosling this time around.

Tatum told the publication: "My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me'.

"I told [my wife] Jenna [Dewan-Tatum] after we'd been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they'd gotten skunked."

He added: "She was like, 'What?' Yeah, she calls me [the Sexiest Man Alive] now."

Speaking of his hot body, Channing added: "I like to be lean. If I get too bulky I can't move well and I like to move. When I'm not training, I get really round and soft."

Dewan-Tatum went on to praise her husband, adding to the mag: "People know him to be fun and sexy, but they don't know how emotionally deep and spiritually open he is.

"He is such an open-hearted person; what you see is what you get."
