Gary Barlow - Gary Barlow Is Crowned Celebrity Dad Of The Year

Gary Barlow has been crowned Premier Inn Celebrity Dad of the Year.

The Take That singer - who is expecting his fourth child with wife Dawn, and is already father to Daniel, 11, Emily, nine, and three-year-old Daisy - was crowned favourite celebrity dad by the British public at a presentation ceremony in London last night (14.06.12), beating off competition from last year's winner Peter Andre.

Gary, 41, said winning the public vote felt ''amazing'', adding: ''I've been waiting for it for a long time.

''My kids are really excited and I don't think they can quite believe it. Being a dad is a really important part of my life and it means a lot to have won this award.''

He then shared the news with his fans on twitter, joking: ''Ladies, gentlemen, lads, lassies and Peter Andre, I'm proud to tell you all that I've won 'Celebrity Dad of the year 2012' #GbArmyyourock''

The 'X Factor' judge openly taunted two-time winner Peter - who is dad to Junior, seven, and four-year-old Princess Tiaamii - on twitter earlier this month in the run-up to the announcement, telling the 'Mysterious Girl' singer to ''stand aside''.

The Premier Inn Celebrity Dad of the Year 2012 award rewards the celebrity dad who has impressed the nation the most by balancing a hectic public life with the demands of parenting.

Other famous faces who were in contention for the prize included soccer star David Beckham, celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and rapper Jay-Z.
