The search for Mr Gay World came to an end last night when one lucky man was chosen for the award.
Stuart Hatton Jr, from the UK, took the title at the ceremony in Rome, Italy.
Hatton Jr, from South Shields, wrote a jubilant status on Facebook after his win.
‘I WON MR GAY WORLD!!!’ he wrote.
‘I am still in a complete daze about it and overwhelmed. But this is just the BEGINNING. Now it's time to show the world what we as a global gay community are made of.
