When even Gordon Smart is raising an eyebrow at your awards, you're in trouble:
MARVIN HUMES has only been a dad for five minutes – but he’s still made the shortlist for Celebrity Dad of the Year 2013.Yes, Marvin Humes' contribution to fatherhood so far has lasted seven days - which means he's made the shortlist for 'not instantly putting the child into a lion enclosure', presumably?
It gets worse for the organisers, as Smart then mocks the names on the shortlist and the event itself:
The JLS singer is up against a number of dads who definitely won’t be going up to accept the nonsense gong if they win a public vote – including footballers WAYNE ROONEY, FRANK LAMPARD, DAVID BECKHAM and GARETH BALE.Interesting that it's a "nonsense gong" this year, as Gordon was happy enough last year when Gary Barlow won:
GARY BARLOW really is top of the pops – after being named Celebrity Dad Of The Year.Even worked in the sponsor's name. Perhaps they changed the judging criteria in the last twelve months.
The X Factor judge collected the prize ahead of the birth of his fourth child.
He pipped reigning champ Peter Andre to the title – sponsored by Premier Inn – in a public vote.
The Take That singer said winning the award felt “amazing” and added: “I’ve been waiting for it for a long time.”
Or maybe they forgot to invite someone to the party this year?
