Premier Inn sponsors celebrity dad of the year – who is in the running?

by Andrea on 3 Jun 2011

Parenting is always a challenge, but more so for the celebrity dads who must juggle the everyday pressures of fatherhood with impressive careers in the spotlight. While the joy of children is a reward all by itself, these great parenting figures are also recognised by the annual Celebrity Dad of the Year competition, judged by the public. Now in its 9th year, the 2011 awards will be sponsored by Premier Inn, the UK’s leading hotel group, and the winner will be announced on 16th June 2011.


With previous winners including the likes of Peter Andre, John Terry and Andrew Flintoff, expectations are high, and support is growing for several new celebrity dads. Elton John and David Furnish have made their first appearance on the short-list, going up against popular names such as David Beckham, who is about to become a father for the fourth time, and well-known comedian James Corden.
