Magazine researcher crowned Heat top torso

A researcher for 24housing magazine has proved to be a hit with the ladies after he was voted Heat magazine’s Torso of the Year.

Somehow topless pictures of Steve Burton were ‘accidently’circulated around the 24housing offices, and impressed with what they saw the office ladies convinced Burton to enter the competition in Heat.

Colleague Annie Neesham explained: ‘We took a picture of Steve – with 24housing magazine placed strategically in the background – and submitted it to Heat.”

Burton’s pictures were obviously impressive, as he is featured in Heat’s Christmas edition, out today.

Burton said: ”It was an amazing feeling to have everybody so excited for me and I owe them a massive thank you for the votes – they even set up a Facebook group for me!”

Does anyone on your magazine have an impressive torso you’d like to share?
