Our Celebalike research reveals George Clooney is the most fancied man amongst British housewives.

With all the pictures we see submitted to our Celebalike App, we thought it was time to do a bit of research into who housewives think is the most fantasised about male.

Here is the news item we released:

George Clooney was yesterday named as the most fantasised about man for British housewives.

A study of 2,000 housewives found the Ocean’s Eleven star was voted the man that most occupies their thoughts while their husband is at work.

Although no stranger to being lusted over the results prove Clooney, now 51, hasn’t lost his touch on the fairer sex – beating Hollywood hunks Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp.

And James Bond star Daniel Craig shoots into fourth – with the nation’s married women happy to have the Skyfall star spy upon them.

While no list would be complete without the presence of David Beckham – Golden Balls rounds off the top five men featuring in the daydreams of Britain’s housewives.

The research was commissioned by Celebalike – the app that shows you which celebrity your face resembles most.

Oscar-winner Colin Firth has the regal touch to have many swooning, while Ewan McGregor and Orlando Bloom follow close.

X-men star Hugh Jackman claws his way in at ninth, while Gary Barlow clearly has the X-factor for many of the country’s women and rounds off the top ten.

Ryan Gosling has the power to put many women in a flutter, while Michael Buble also seems to be hitting the right note.

And many a British housewife is eager to share an out of this world experience with former Dr Who star David Tennant who makes an appearance inside the top 20 biggest crushes for housewives.

The inimitable Robbie Williams finds himself at 16, while Twilight vampire Robert Pattinson is the youngest man to get the blood rushing for married women.

And X-factor host Dermot O’Leary proves a favourite among Britain’s betrothed – closing the top 20 most wanted men.

One in seven married women would go as far as to say they have a particular celebrity they obsess over and regularly daydream about.

A sixth of married women spend time wishing their celebrity would come and whisk them off somewhere romantic.

While a cheeky one in eight say they would be prepared to leave their husband should an opportunity with their favourite celebrity ever crop up.

In fact, one in ten women admitted their partner had warned them that their infatuation with a particular celebrity was getting too much.

On average, the women studied deemed 24 as the age they felt it was ok for a married woman to date without feeling the age was a barrier.

And one in four women were happy to be deemed ‘cougars’ – reasoning that dating an 18 year old was perfectly acceptable.

While a sixth of women confessed there are many celebrities that they’d much rather ‘be a mum too’ rather than fancy – Daniel Radcliffe, Harry Styles and Justin Bieber were most likely to inspire maternal feelings.
