Presenting Top Gear has been voted the top dream job for men in a poll.

The jobs of Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond were voted above the likes of video games tester and professional sportsman.

The poll was conducted by My Voucher Codes in order to understand UK career preferences. 1,356 men over 18 took part in the poll.

The top ten dream jobs for men in full:

1. Top Gear presenter (29%)
2. Video games tester (25%)
3. Professional sportsman (24%)
4. Actor (21%)
5. Formula 1 driver (19%)
6. Fireman (17%)
7. Stockbroker (16%)
8. Pilot (14%)
9. Spy (12%)
10. Inventor (11%)

Chairman Mark Pearson said: "It's quite interesting to see that Top Gear presenter has beaten professional sportsman to take first place for men's dream job.

"However, when you think about the injuries and amount of training that goes into being a professional sportsman, compared with a life of driving and testing cars, it doesn't seem all that surprising!"

Jeremy Clarkson recently threatened to quit Top Gear if production moves from London to Manchester.
