SHE’S A SHAW WINNER
Suzanne Shaw crowned winner of La Redoute Celebrity Mum of the Year 2008
LONDON (February 28, 2008) The battle continues on the ice, but the nation has crowned Dancing on Ice babe Suzanne Shaw La Redoute Celebrity Mum of the Year 2008.
Suzanne has battled to be a brilliant mum after splitting from Darren Day, who is father to Corey, now three years old. Not to be held back, Suzanne is currently performing on ITV’s Dancing On Ice and is tipped as the favourite to win.
Suzanne who made her name in Popstars’ band, Hear Say, alongside fellow Celebrity Mum nominees Myleene Klass and Kym Ryder, has defied the odds to make it as the nation’s number one.
Accepting the award on Thursday morning, an overwhelmed Suzanne commented, “Being a mum can be hard work and bringing up Corey by myself wasn’t easy - as I’m sure a lot of single mothers can vouch for, but we can also vouch for that fact that being a 'mummy' is also the BEST job in the world! So to win this award is really amazing and such an honour that I want to share it with other mums everywhere, this ones for us! And Corey will be so proud too.”
It was one of the closest battles for the title in its eight years history. Suzanne beat off stiff competition from Loose Woman presenter Coleen Nolan and last year’s winner Katie Price. She also outstripped fellow popstars the Spice Girls.
Phil Crampton of La Redoute said, “We are so pleased that Suzanne Shaw has won the La Redoute Celebrity Mum of the Year Award. She is a great mother and performer, and the public have shown through their voting that she is a well deserved winner. No matter what happens on the ice, Suzanne is already Britain’s number one mum.”
The top five rankings for La Redoute Celebrity Mum of the Year, as voted by the Great British public, and their share of the total vote were as follows:
1st Suzanne Shaw (28%)
2nd Coleen Nolan (25%)
3rd Myleene Klass (17%)
4th Katie Price (11%)
5th Emma Bunton (6%)
Other nominees included Mel B, Heather Mills-McCartney, Victoria Beckham, Charlotte Church, Alex Curran, Kate Garraway, Kate Moss, and Kym Ryder.
