"The Vampire Diaries" star Ian Somerhalder has fought off competition from "Gossip Girl" hunks Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick to be named the sexiest man in showbiz in a new British survey.

Westwick came second in the poll for Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine, while his co-star came sixth. "Twilight" actor Robert Pattinson was voted third, while Johnny Depp came fourth and Taylor Lautner rounded out the top five.

Last summer Ian's vampire character in "The Vampire Diaries" beat "Twilight's" Edward Cullen to be crowned America's Sexiest Beast.

However, Pattinson and Lautner lead Glamour magazine's 2010 summer poll of the world's hottest men. Ian came in third.
