The Vamps' James and 5SOS's Ashton Irwin compete for 'Sexiest Male' title
The station "shortlisted down the most desired and talked about celebrities from the world of music this year" and is now asking fans to vote for the finalists using specially created hashtags on social networking site, Twitter.
McVey is doing well in the voting so far, but he is going head to head against the likes of Justin Bieber, One Direction's curly-haired heartthrob Harry Styles, and 5 Seconds Of Summer drummer Ashton Irwin.
The 'Wild Heart' hitmaker was clearly pleased by the recognition and shared a tweet with his own followers, encouraging them to support him and push him into the lead: "So apparently I've been voted one of @CapitalOfficial 'sexiest males' haha! Please vote for me with hashtag #TheVampsJamesSexiest."
He then returned to the social networking site and shared a series of selfies, in which he can be seen lounging around with 'spot cream' on his face and joked: "I think my spot cream and ill face should win me #TheVampsJamesSexiest Sexiest male on @CapitalOfficial."
To vote for McVey, head to Twitter and use the hashtag '#TheVampsJamesSexiest', for 5SOS's Ashton Irwin it's '#5SOSAshtonSexiest', and for Harry Styles use '#HarryStylesSexiest'. The full list of finalists can be found on Capital FM's website.
