The people of Ukraine have been named as the sexiest in the world, according to a new survey.

The people living from the Western steppes Liviv of to the Donbask were found to be the most attractive, followed by Danish and Filipino in third.

In a survey put to over a million people Big 7 travel asked peopl to name which country had the 'sexiest nationality'.

The company acknowledged this was a highly subjective question, however that won't be of any consolation to those nationalities coming bottom of the league.

The company cited boxer Manny Pacquiao and Bruno Mars for the world's fascination with Filipinos.

However, it was the birthplace of Mila Kunis that claimed the most attractive population for 2019.

"Ukrainians have a striking appearance and have easily topped our poll for 2019," said the survey.

Just when you thought ranking nationalities in order of attractiveness was 'old fashioned' –bordering on ethnic fetishism – the Big 7 Travel company have taken a survey of their 1.5 million social media followers for a 21st century approach to the Ethnography of sexiness.

The survey was conducted by the same agency which last month revealed Kiwis to have the most desirable accent in the world – so we're willing to listen.

On overall attractiveness New Zealanders were found to be middle of the table at number 23.

"Kiwis might have scooped the world's sexiest accent, it seems people would prefer to hear them, not see them," said Big 7.

Rude.

As for the countries that didn't fare as well, the company did say that the term was highly subjective.

"Survey respondents were given no further specifications of the term 'sexy', so interpretation of the word was up to them."

Croats also came bottom of the recent 'Sexiest Accent' survey.

As for the Irish and Croatians who felt slighted by their survey score, the Travel company apologised saying at least "they do have beautiful scenery."
