HOLLYWOOD legend Steve McQueen has been voted the Coolest Celebrity of All Time.
The star of movie classics The Magnificent Seven and The Great Escape beat Elvis Presley and Muhammad Ali to the title.
Steve, who died in 1980 from lung cancer, has also been voted the coolest movie star in the Carling Extra Cold poll.
A spokesman said: "Steve embodies what are said to be the coolest attributes - he's strong, sexy and independent. But Elvis, Ali and Al Pacino ran him close."
Elvis and Ali did win their own awards, though, as coolest music and sport stars.
And Brit band Massive Attack won coolest band, while Elvis also topped the coolest song chart with Suspicious Minds, ahead of James Brown's Sex Machine and Walk on the Wild Side by Lou Reed.
The uncoolest celebrity is Cliff Richard, beating David Hasselhof, and TV presenter Keith Chegwin.
Gritty 70s cop drama The Sweeney was voted the coolest TV show, followed by two series featuring very different families - The Simpsons and The Sopranos.
Pop star Robbie Williams had a bit of a mixed bag. He's the 11th coolest music star, but also the 12th UNCOOLEST celeb.
