The Mr Gay UK competition has returned after a three year absence.

Heats took place all over the country and those men voted hottest in their region have been put forward to the final.

This year features an online penultimate round for the last fourteen contestants.

The top three will then be invited to the final ceremony for the coronation of Mr Gay UK 2011.

Terry George, owner and promoter of Mr Gay UK said: “I’m so glad to be able to bring back the contest. It’s been a great year with some great guys entering. I can’t wait to see who takes it this year.”

The prizes this year include a professional photo-shoot on location in Morocco, the opportunity to enter Mr. Gay Europe and £2000 in cash.

Voting will be open from 8-29 November, and the final three will be announced on Wednesday 30 November.
