FHM Magazine has released its annual list of 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2012 -- we bring you the top 20!

Every year, actresses, models and entertainers vie with each other for this coveted crown -- FHM's Sexiest Woman in the World.

Now in its eighteenth year, the magazine's prestigious 100 list has some new additions, some phenomenal climbers and some movers and shakers who've slipped a little lower down.

But best of all, they've declared a brand new winner!

To find out just who it is and which other lovely ladies made it to the top 20, move to the following pages!

20. Kelly Brook

The 32-year-old British glamour gal, dubbed by FHM as 'Kent's finest bra model' wasn't able to hold on to her eighth position from last year and slid right down to twentieth.

It's worth noting, however, that she topped the list back in 2005.
