Television's sexiest stars can be found on TV One - but the best presenters are on TV3.

That's according to a new poll by local telly magazine TV Guide, whose readers named TV One's weekend Breakfast host Toni Street and weather presenter Tamati Coffey as New Zealand's sexiest TV stars.

Street beat fellow nominees Kimberly Crossman, Samantha Hayes, Hayley Holt, Alison Pugh and Esther Stephens to the title, while Coffey was chosen over Pua Magasiva, Robbie Magasiva, Jay Ryan, Jeremy Corbett and Simon Dallow.

Street told Fairfax NZ her winning smile helped her lift the title.


"I'm a naturally friendly person, and I think Kiwis can relate to that," she said.

While TV One had the sexiest presenters, TV3 had the best, with Hilary Barry winning best presenter for her role on 3 News, and John Campbell winning best current affairs presenter for Campbell Live.

One News won best news, Campbell Live was named best current affairs, and Breakfast took out the title for best morning show.
