Dad Of The Year Peter Andre

Peter Andre has been crowned Celebrity Dad of the Year 2010.

The 'Mysterious Girl' singer - who raises three children with ex-wife Katie Price - was thrilled to be given the award by Bounty Parenting Club, which received 35,000 votes to determine the winner.

He said: "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."

Since splitting from Katie in 2009, Peter has played a vital role in the lives of his two children Junior, five, and Princess Tiaamii, two, as well as continuing to care for his eight-year-old stepson Harvey - the model's child from a previous relationship.

Faye Mingo, spokesperson for Bounty, said: "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. "

Take That singer Mark Owen and British TV presenter Vernon Kay came bottom of the poll, while Jeff Brazier - the father of late celebrity Jade Goody's two sons - just missed out on the top spot. Mark's bandmate Gary Barlow came in third place.

Peter recently revealed he is a strict parent when it comes to disciplining daughter Princess Tiaamii.

He explained: "She's not going to start dating - ever! I did a show recently called 'Odd One In' and one contestant was a nun. I asked her how do I get Princess into a convent before she starts dating?

"I want to be her Valentine's date for the next 54 years."
