NEWS FROM CELEBRITY MUM OF THE YEAR
Kym Marsh crowned winner of Bounty Celebrity Mum of the Year 2009
MANCHESTER (November 4, 2009) Coronation Street star Kym Marsh has been awarded, by the public, the coveted award of Bounty Celebrity Mum of the Year award.
Swapping the cobbles for the limelight, the 33 year old actress and mum of two, Kym Marsh accepted the award on Wednesday morning. Kym was thrilled, “This is such an honour. It’s been an emotionally tough year but the public’s support and good wishes have been incredible. This really means so much to me.”
After a difficult year, the plucky single mum has clearly won a place in the nation’s hearts. Currently playing Michelle Connor in the UK’s most popular soap, Kym’s resilience and drive to succeed to provide for her two children, David, 14, and Emily,11, has made her the first choice of the public.
With record amounts of votes, this year’s award was the most hotly contested to date. Kym battled off This Morning presenter and returning-to-work new mum, Holly Willoughby and the former presenter Fern Britton. She also faced stiff competition from Tess Daley, Charlotte Church and Emma Bunton. Despite having caused controversy in the shortlist, Katie Price failed to reclaim her title and featured in 19th position.
Faye Mingo, Parenting Spokesperson for Bounty.com said, “We delighted that Kim has been recognised. Whilst she’s a celebrity with a fantastic career, other mums admire the fact that her feet remain firmly of the ground and that family comes first for Kim. The public have got behind her to make sure she finishes the year on a high.”
The top ten celebrity mums are as follows:
1. Kym Marsh
2. Holly Willoughby
3. Tess Daly
4. Fern Britton
5. Emma Bunton
6. Charlotte Church
7. Myleene Klass
8. Kate Garraway
9. Edith Bowman
10. Billie Piper
