The wait is over and the nation have voted! After an exciting, thrilling and tense race it's Take That front man Gary Barlow that has taken the crown as Britain's Celebrity Dad of the Year 2015! Gary Barlow fought off competition from fellow band member Robbie Williams, famous footballers David Beckham and Rio Ferdinand, Marvin Humes, last year's winner Tom Fletcher, X Factor judge Simon Cowell, Peter Andre and even the royalty of Prince William!
Gary has won the award before in 2012 but that didn't stop him wanting to take the title again! With the support of his extremely loyal #GBarmy fans, he was able to win Celebrity Dad Of The Year for the second time! He commented, "I'm absolutely made-up to have been voted icelolly.com Celebrity Dad of the Year 2015 and I'd like to thank everyone who voted for me".
The influx of social media posts didn't stop once Gary had won the competition though. In fact, it was only the beginning as Gary posted a series of photos of him and his precious Celebrity Dad award. There was even one of him curled up having a nap with the coveted prize. His fans also got in on the action with one creating some spectacular fan art!
Winning the award must also have been a welcome break from the hectic tour schedule that Take That are on at the moment, with the band of 3 taking their show to Birmingham, Manchester, London, Newcastle and Sheffield.
The proud dad of three seemed pretty pleased with himself to have won the award for the second time running saying that he's usually a bit dubious about awards but icelolly.com Celebrity Dad of the Year get it right. Well, thanks Gary!
We sure that the coveted trophy has pride of place on the Take That frontman's mantelpiece at home and who knows, he could be in the running to win it next year too!
