Katie Price has been capturing headlines for all the wrong reasons over the last few months but she’s doing something right as she is nominated again for this year’s official Bounty Celebrity Mum of the Year.

Despite a public and an acrimonious divorce, Katie’s been shortlisted by the public for this year’s coveted official Bounty Celebrity Mum of the Year Award. But she faces stiff competition from 19 other nominations going head to head to be crowned official Bounty Celebrity Mum of the Year.

Celebrity mums from the world of pop, radio and TV have been shortlisted by the public for a multitude of reasons ranging from; admiration and aspiration, their ability to fight back in the face of adversity and tragedy, for balancing hectic public lives with the pressures of parenting, as well as for shunning the public eye altogether in favour of family.

Radio presenters Edith Bowman and Emma Bunton are up against TV presenters Holly Willoughby, Tess Daly and Kate Garraway who have been shortlisted by the public for the prestigious award. Strictly Come Dancing presenter Tess Daly risks being outshone by show contestant Jo Wood, who has danced her way into the nation’s hearts, but which mum is ‘strictly’ the best?

Last year’s winner Suzanne Shaw makes the shortlist as do Fern Britton and Holly Willoughby.

Notably missing is previous winner Kerry Katona and for the first time Victoria Beckham, with her move to LA distancing her from her fellow Brits.

In the ninth year of the prestigious award the public has been logging on to www.bounty.com/celebmum to vote for their favorite celebrity mums creating a shortlist of 20.

The women jostling for the title at present are (in no particular order):

Geri Halliwell
Jo Wood
Myleene Klass
Tess Daly
Edith Bowman
Holly Willoughby
Katie Price
Kym Marsh
Charlotte Church
Billie Piper
Kate Garraway
Sophie Ellis Bextor
Fern Britton
Suzanne Shaw
Emma Bunton
Samantha Cameron
Natasha Kaplinsky
Coleen Nolan
Mel B
Kate Moss

Members of the public have swamped www.bounty.com/celebmum since the nominations opened three weeks ago. The official Bounty Celebrity Mum Of The Year award aims to reward the celebrity mum who has impressed the public by balancing a hectic public life with the demands of parenting. An award will also be given to the official Bounty Real Mum of the Year.

Britain has until midnight on 1st November to vote for its celebrity mum from the short listed top 20 by registering nominations at www.bounty.com/celebmum with the winner presented with their award at an exclusive presentation ceremony on 4th November at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.
