HUDDERSFIELD hunk Daniel Margaglione is starring in a calendar of Yorkshire's best looking men.

Daniel, 23, fought off fierce competition to win a place in the Galaxy FM 2007 calendar.

Daniel, from Lindley, has been chosen to be Mr January.

He said: "My girlfriend Marianne nominated me, but it was her friend's idea.

"I didn't really mind though."

The radio station began its search for contenders when JoJo, a presenter on the Hirsty's Daily Dose breakfast show, decided she wanted to find 12 of the best-looking blokes in Yorkshire.

Daniel said: "I've not done anything like this before. It made a change.

"I know there were a lot of nominations, so I was pleased to get so far."

JoJo appealed for help tracking down suitable men and was swamped with hundreds of nominations from the wives, girlfriends, colleagues and mums of eligible men from across the region.

She even armed the Galaxy Crew with cameras and sent them out "talent-spotting" in bars and nightclubs around Yorkshire.

Twenty-five finalists were eventually chosen, and were then photographed, ready for their possible inclusion in the calendar.

Their fate was then left in the hands of Galaxy listeners.

Daniel said: "I went to the photo shoot at House of Fraser in Leeds. I got to wear their clothes, but didn't get to keep them. I didn't even get a discount!"

Thousands of people visited the station's website to vote for their favourite guy. JoJo said: "Now that I've found these gorgeous fellas, it would be rude not to spend the next 12 months admiring them."

Daniel, who works at Cummins Turbo Technologies, said: "My friends have been giving me a lot of stick about it. I'll never hear the end of it."

The calendars, which are now being printed, will be distributed free of charge throughout the region. Anyone wanting to apply for a copy can do so by logging on to
