James Norton's Sexiest Photos: 100 Hot Snaps Of The 'Happy Valley' And 'Grantchester' Actor

There’s no denying that James Norton is fast becoming one of Britain’s brightest stars, thanks to his appearances in a multitude of TV dramas, as well as roles on the big screen.

In the past 12 months alone, we’ve seen him playing the scorned Lord Chatterley in the BBC adaptation of ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’, taking on the enviable lead role in ‘War & Peace’, as well as returning to 'Happy Valley' as Catherine Cawood’s psychopathic nemesis.

He also made eyes pop when he reprised his role as Reverend Sidney Chambers in ‘Grantchester’ this year, when his character cast off his shirt and took a dip in the lake, immediately bagging him hundreds of new admirers (us included).

Following this… does anyone fancy a look at some more photos of James Norton looking absolutely lovely? You do? Do you fancy 100 of them?

Oh, go on then...
