Irish people reveal which celebs they most want to kiss
The people of Ireland have revealed which celebrities they would most like to kiss and you won’t be surprised to hear that the gorgeous Georgia Penna and handsome Jamie Dornan topped the list.
Fifty Shades of Grey actor Dornan has clearly got Irish hearts racing as he was named the most kissable male celebrity with 17% of the vote.
Former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan came second with 14% and there was a four-way tie for third with rugby star Rob Kearney, musician Bressie, and actors Colin Farrell and Michael Fassbender all receiving 12% of the vote.
Irish women showed their varied tastes in men by naming Niall Horan, Ronan Keating, Conor McGregor and Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the top ten. Chat king Ryan Tubridy received 1% of the total votes.
On the female side, model Georgia Penna came out on top of the poll. The former Big Brother contestant was once named the fifth sexiest woman in the world and Irish men obviously agree with 22% naming her as their number one celebrity smooch.
Actress Amy Huberman and singer Andrea Corr tied for second with each receiving 14% of votes.
Former Miss Universe Ireland Roz Purcell finished third with 11% and former Miss World Rosanna Davison was next with 9% of votes.
Hollywood star Saoirse Ronan and presenter Jennifer Zamparelli were also named in the top ten.
RTÉ weather reporter Teresa Mannion got 1% of the vote after she became an online star last year for her dramatic warning to the public to stay safe during the extreme conditions brought on by Storm Desmond.
The survey was carried out by Cymex Cream, which is a cold sore treatment. As well as asking about celebrity smooches, they also questioned the Irish about their own experiences.
Two thirds named cold sores as the biggest kissing turn off and French kissing and gentle kissing are the nations favourite types of smooch, with each receiving 40% of the vote.
Nearly half of those surveyed revealed they had their own first romantic kiss between the ages of 15 and 19. More than 56% remembered their first kiss as a good experience, but a quarter said it was a negative experience.
