British Mr Gay World winner's hottest shots

Mr Gay UK takes global crown, and he's hot...

Stuart Hatton Jr, 29, was once just your regular super-hot gay dance instructor. Then, last year, he entered Mr Gay UK 2013, and entered into the roller-coaster world of topless photo shoots and public votes.

Following his success in Mr Gay UK, he narrowly missed out on the title of Mr Gay Europe in June (he came third). But every success story needs setbacks (where else would we get the drama?), and that didn’t stop Stuart from seizing victory in the Mr Gay World competition.

What does it take to make it to the top? More hours of commitment than most of us can muster, that’s for sure - but until we figure out an easier way, we took a look at some of Stuart’s best selfies to try and discover a day in the life of the gay community’s newest global role-model.

The day starts early for Stuart; don’t touch the snooze button, there’s no time for a lie-in!

It can take hours of exercise to maintain a body that good, so it’s off to the gym for Stuart. Fortunately, as a dance instructor, he doesn’t have to worry too much about skipping ‘leg day’.

Nutrition is just as important. Swap the chocolate bar for a banana or two – just as tasty!

As well as looking after his body, Stuart makes sure to keep things tidy. He looks like a useful pair of hands to have around the house.

Of course, it’s also important to be a role-model within the community. Here he is taking a stand against homophobia, Stonewall-style.

Even Mr Gay World needs some downtime. Time to chill on the sofa with a glass of something sweet.

Stuart Hatton, 29, is from South Shields in Tyneside. He was announced as Mr Gay World in Rome yesterday.and you can follow him @hattondancer
