The results are in and we can finally announce that Foxy Bingo have surprisingly named Katie Price as their Celebrity Mum of the Year for the second time. The mum of three and television personality regained the title that she first won five years ago and it’s all thanks to a public poll of votes. Other mums up for the coveted award included Holly Willoughby, Samantha Cameron, Victoria Beckham and Amanda Holden, who Price pipped to the post at the very last minute. Price, who describes herself as a model and businesswoman describes being a mum as ‘one of the most rewarding jobs in the world’ and highlights how difficult it can be to juggle her career and the needs of her children.
Katie Price has three children, nine year old Harvey, son of ex-footballer Dwight Yorke and six year old Junior and five year old Princess who were fathered by Peter Andre, Price’s ex-husband and a current celebrity dad of the year. Price is especially happy to regain her crown as celebrity mum of the year at Foxy Bingo because it’s a public poll voted to by real mums and fans of her and her family.
Speaking on behalf of Foxy Bingo, Mark Segal highlighted how Price was a ‘wonderful role model’ for working mums especially as her son Harvey lives with severe disabilities including blindness and an autistic spectrum disorder. Segal asserts that the difficulties that Price has overcome, make her a perfect role model for Foxy Bingo and their Celebrity Mum of the Year competition.
Last year’s winner Stacey Solomon has been getting less positive press as her reign was brought to an abrupt end as she was seen smoking whilst seven months pregnant with her second child. Solomon had been a hugely popular TV star since her appearance on X Factor and then becoming Queen of the Celebrity Jungle, yet since the public and media discovered her habit, she has found herself the subject of much disgust and scorn. Stacey, who already has a young son was photographed smoking and this caused Foxy Bingo to remove her from her position at Celebrity Mum of the Year.
Foxy Bingo has been the sponsor of the Celebrity Mum of the Year competition since 2010. There is hope that this year’s winner will keep hold of her crown for the whole tenure and show the world she is worthy of the prize.
