NEWS FROM BOUNTY CELEBRITY DAD OF THE YEAR
PETE’S NEXT CHAPTER
Peter Andre crowned winner of Bounty Celebrity Dad of the Year 2010
LONDON (June 17, 2010) Celebrity sensation Peter Andre has been awarded the coveted award of Celebrity Dad of the Year by Bounty Parenting Club.
Taking time out from his hectic schedule, the 37 year old single dad of two accepted the publicly voted award on Thursday morning. Pete was overwhelmed, “This feels so good. It’s been a turnaround year for me and the kids and it’s an honour to be the subject of the public’s support and best wishes. This means a huge amount to me as being a dad is my most important role.”
A year after his high-profile divorce from Katie Price, the loveable single dad has clearly won a place in the nation’s hearts. Having taken a very different tack to his ex-wife, Pete has focussed on bringing up his own children and playing a vital role in the life of his stepson Harvey, without exposing them to the media’s eye, making him a clear favourite with the public.
With over 35,000 votes cast, the top spot was the most hotly contested to date. Pete battled off stiff competition from fellow single dad and TV presenter, Jeff Brazier, pop star, Gary Barlow and chef, Jamie Oliver, and proved that good wins out in the end by trumping love rats, Mark Owen and Vernon Kay, to the title. And in a turn in the polls, Gordon Brown has beaten David Cameron in the voting.
Faye Mingo, Parenting Spokesperson for Bounty.com said, “Bounty is thrilled Peter has been awarded the title. Our mums tell us that he’s an inspiration for all single dads going through a tough divorce and that they respect the fact that he makes time and puts in untold effort to be able to enjoy the family life he values so much. As his career goes from strength to strength and we wish him all the best in the future.”

1. Peter Andre
2. Jeff Brazier
