Ricky Gervais’ pal Karl Pilkington has topped Heat magazine’s 2010 Weird Crush list.

The Top 25 as voted for by Heat readers was full of funnymen proving once and for all that a GSOH (good sense of humour) can triumph over looks…most of the time.

On winning the title Karl said: ‘I didn’t know how I felt. It’s good to win something, because I’ve never won anything in my life. Weird crush, though – what does it mean? It’s a polite way of saying ‘You’re an ugly freak,’ isn’t it?’

He wasn’t so sure about the ‘weird’ title: ‘[It’s] like how some people are into having it off with dead people. That’s ‘weird’. It’s like being in a shop window next to butt plugs or something…The weird things that people are into.’

Joining Karl were Russell Howard, David Mitchell, Chris Moyles, Jason Manford, , The Inbetweeners’ James Buckley, Michael Cera and Alexander Armstrong.

However the ‘Go Compare’ man did make an appearance too…
