Move over JLo and co as Jodie Comer has been declared the most beautiful woman in the world, according to science.

The 29-year-old Killing Eve actor was found to be 94.52% accurate to the Golden Ratio of Beauty – also known as Phi – which measures physical perfection.

Her eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw and facial shape were measured and came closest to the ancient Greeks’ notion of perfectly proportioned attributes.

While it may seem shallow to rate a person on their looks alone, the Golden Ratio is a mathematical equation first devised by the Greeks in an attempt to measure beauty.

The premise is that the closer the ratios of a face or body are to the number 1.618 (Phi), the more beautiful they become.

Dune star Zendaya, 26, girlfriend of Spiderman's Tom Holland, came in second with 94.37%, while model Bella Hadid, 25, was third with 94.35%.

Singer Beyoncé, 41, crept into fourth with a face mapping score of 92.44%, but all were considered close to the perfect score of 100%.

The list was compiled using the latest computerised mapping techniques by Harley Street facial cosmetic surgeon Dr Julian De Silva, who uses the technology in his work.

Commenting on the results Dr De Silva, who runs the Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic And Plastic Surgery in London, said: “Jodie Comer was the clear winner when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection.

“She had the highest overall reading for the positioning of her nose and lips, with a score of 98.7%, which is only 1.3% away from being the perfect shape.

“Jodie also had the highest score for her nose width and length and she was near the top for the shape of her lips and the position of her eyes.

"The only element she was marked down for was her eyebrows which achieved an average score of 88%.

Zendaya was a close second and easily topped the scores for lips with a mark of 99.5% and and her forehead at 98%.

“Bella Hadid was third, achieving top score for her eye position and her chin," Dr De Silva continues.

Other celebrities making up the top ten list include Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift and Squid Games' HoYeon Jung.

“These brand new computer mapping techniques allow us to solve some of the mysteries of what it is that makes someone physically beautiful and the technology is useful when planning patients’ surgery,” Dr De Silva adds.

While it's interesting to see the famous faces topping the most beautiful list, according to a mathematical formula, it is also worth noting that there are plenty of other measures of beauty, including personality, sense of humour and kindness, of course.

True beauty comes from within – as the saying goes – and let's not forget attractiveness is also subjective, differing between countries and cultures.
