William and George

We're not sure how exactly this award is judged, but the nominees for Celebrity Dad of the Year 2018 have been announced.

Prince William will go up against Simon Cowell and Rio Ferdinand for this year's prize.

The Duke of Cambridge welcomed his third child with Kate Middleton, Prince Louis, earlier this year. Cowell has also been entertaining TV viewers with his young son Eric.

Former footballer Ferdinand's wife Rebecca died of breast cancer in 2015, while fellow nominee Simon Thomas's wife Gemma died in November, after being diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia.

The winner of the Clas Ohlson prize will be announced in June.

The full nominees are:

  • The Duke of Cambridge
  • Simon Cowell
  • Rio Ferdinand
  • Simon Thomas
  • David Walliams
  • Liam Payne
  • Anthony Joshua
  • Tyson Fury
  • Josh Patterson
  • Mark Hoyle
