A United Kingdom magazine, featuring a Manxman as its cover star, goes on sale on Monday.
Twenty-one year old Chris Whitlow from Onchan, beat 14 other hopefuls in a vote on the website of Men's Health.
Chris, who is studying economics at Sheffield University, found out he had won at the magazine's Cover Model of the Year event in Soho, London last week.
In addition to the cover shoot he has won contracts with two modelling agencies.
