THE majority of firefighters are pretty average looking, it has emerged.
Researchers at the Institute for Studies found that less than two per cent of fire prevention operatives have a chiselled jaw and washboard abs.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: “Most of them aren’t calendar worthy, in fact many firefighters could pass for coach drivers or members of other un-sexy professions.
“The good looking ones only do the job for about six months’ anyway before they get headhunted by a male stripper outfit like the Dream Boys and change their name to ‘Lex Montana’.”
Fireman Wayne Hayes said: “My job is charging into burning buildings and rescuing people, not to be some kind of go-to sex object for unimaginative housewives.
“However I do moisturise and exfoliate, you have to when working around all that dry air.”
