Sexiest moment in history of the screen.

Ursula Andress's beguiling bikini scene (left) in James Bond movie Dr No has been named the sexiest screen moment of all time.

The scene -shot 41 years ago -features Andress emerging from the sea as temptress Honey Rider in a yellow swimsuit, brandishing seashells with a knife at her waist.

The iconic image topped the list in a Channel 4 countdown of the 100 Greatest Sexy Moments. Andress, now 67, pushed Sarah Michelle Gellar's lesbian kiss in Cruel Intentions into second place. The Buffy The Vampire Slayer star kisses Selma Blair in the glossy modern remake of Dan-gerous Liaisons. Thousands of votes were cast during October to decide the final order from a list of nominees from film and TV.

The list is largely dominated by women in a state of undress like third-placed From Dusk Til Dawn where Salma Hayek dances saucily with a snake at a topless bar.

In fourth position is a scene from Out Of Sight where George Clooney is locked in a boot with Jennifer Lopez.

At number seven viewers voted for the animated bunny Jessica in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the highest ranked non-human in the list.

Other entries in the list include Gillian Taylforth's pool table sex romp in Footballer's Wives at number 49.

Britt Ekland's nude dance in classic horror chiller The Wicker Man is one place below.

And at number 53 is Nigella Lawson in her cookery show Nigella Bites.
