Idris Elba has been named as the new face of Smartwater, a Coca Cola owned company in the States and suddenly H2O has become sexy!

It seems that the Americans can’t get enough of our English hunk, who has already been a hit in US films such as Takers and Daddy’s Little Girls, as well as being most famously known for his role in The Wire on HBO.

The Emmy nominated actor will feature in an ad campaign, following in the footsteps of Jennifer Aniston, which will run in Essence, GQ and Men’s Journal.

Fashion photographer Norman Jean Ray was responsible for taking the smouldering pictures of the handsome actor and we’re praying they release some sort of Idris Elba SmartWater calender.

But I think it’s safe to say, our thirst has been quenched.
