We’ve got exciting news – Celebrity Mum of the Year 2016 is here! We had so much fun hosting the competition last year that we’ve decided to do it all over again this year, and after a short nominations stage we’ve got our 10 finalists, as voted for by the UK public. Today we’ve announced the shortlist, and we’re thrilled at the amazing women that have been nominated for the prize.
Making her reappearance is last year’s winner Billie Faiers, who will surely want to defend her crown this year. However joining her in the top 10 is her sister and fellow TOWIE star Sam Faiers, who gave birth to her first child Paul Tony in December, so we’re looking forward to some friendly sibling rivalry!
It’s not the only rivalry on our shortlist; model, businesswoman and mother-of-five Katie Price is going up against Emily MacDonagh, who is now married to Katie’s ex-husband Peter Andre. Emily and Peter have a daughter together, and announced at the end of last year that they’re soon hoping to make it two.
Also making the shortlist is pop superstar Adele, who recently released her new album after taking a career break to enjoy motherhood with son Angelo. She’s joined by Olympic heptathlete Jessica Ennis-Hill, who amazed everyone with her fast return to form after the birth of her son Reggie and is now preparing to defend her Olympic title in Rio this summer.
Giovanna Fletcher has also been nominated and will be hoping to better husband Tom Fletcher, who was nominated for Celebrity Dad of the Year in 2015 but narrowly missed out to Gary Barlow. The pair are known for their adorable family photos and videos with son Buzz, and Giovanna is pregnant with their second child.
Completing the top 10 are stylish WAG Coleen Rooney, Celebrity Big Brother star Danielle Lloyd and a surprise appearance from mummy vlogger Louise Pentland. While not the kind of celebrity we’re used to seeing, Louise has her own kind of fame, with over 2 million subscribers on her YouTube channel, Sprinkle of Glitter.
All of these fantastic ladies deserve an award, but only one can be crowned Celebrity Mum of the Year. Which one takes the trophy is up to you, so vote now to have your say
