Gary Barlow is Celebrity Dad of the Year 2015!

Take That star Gary Barlow has been unveiled as Celebrity Dad of the Year 2015 following an open vote by the British public.

Pipping a host of famous contenders to the post including David Beckham, Simon Cowell and former bandmate Robbie Williams, the 44-year-old - who has three children with wife Dawn - claimed the much-coveted award for the second time, after an earlier triumph in 2012.

Gary, who is currently touring the UK with Howard Donald and Mark Owen, was once again recognised by the British public as the celebrity dad who they feel is doing the best job of raising his children while maintaining a busy career and life in the limelight.

Tom Fletcher, Peter Andre, Rio Ferdinand, Marvin Humes and Prince William completed this year's shortlist.

Speaking of his win, Gary said: "I'm absolutely made-up to have been voted Celebrity Dad of the Year 2015 and I'd like to thank everyone who voted for me. 

"I’ve got to be honest I’m always a bit dubious about awards - The BRITs, Oscars…but Celebrity Dad of the Year get it right, and they’ve got it right twice now. I think 2012 and 2015 in particular the audience has spoken and they know what they want!
