Celebrity Dad of the Year

A 31-year-old dad famous for his funny YouTube videos has been crowned the surprise winner of Celebrity Dad of the Year 2018.

Mark Hoyle - known as LadBaby - beat the likes of Prince William and Rio Ferdinand to the prize.

LadBaby has won millions of fans on social media, thanks to his videos about his parenting adventures.

He also beat Simon Cowell, Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams, presenter Simon Thomas and Made in Chelsea star Josh 'JP' Patterson to the title.

The Nottinghamshire-born star previously said it would take "a miracle" to win the prize, but was awarded the Clas Ohlson award at the weekend.

"Shocked is an understatement," he told the Daily Star.

“Full credit to my awesome army of fans and followers who all made it their mission to help me take home the award.

"If Anthony Joshua, Simon Cowell or Prince William want to pop round to my house and see some of my dad hacks in action I’d be happy to stick on the kettle," he joked.
