Tbh, what's there not to love about Idris Elba? The actor has won our hearts over and over again in his role as detective on Luther (we're obsessed with the latest season). And let's face it: he's bloody good at what he does - plus he looks as if he's been carved from angels. Which he probably has been.

In our opinion, this 46-year-old heartthrob doesn't get as much credit and appreciation as he deserves. So, we've created this incredible (if we do say so ourselves) gallery of the best pics of Idris Elba AKA the love of our lives. You can thank us later.

Scroll through a selection of mesmerising pics of Idris Elba below:

Get you a man that can pull off both the off-duty hoody look as well as the suit look, tbh.

Nobody can quite pull off a bow-tie as well as Idris can. Fact.
