Yummy Mummies

Nigella Lawson and Myleene Klass have been voted as 2007’s Yummiest Mummies, in a survey by children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent to mark the fourth National Yummy Mummy Week (15-23 September). The two women jointly topped the poll, which saw Victoria Beckham - last year’s winner - knocked off the top slot into ninth position, behind her former band mate - Emma Bunton - who entered the poll this year at number eight.

The survey of over 1,000 people found Nigella, who has two children and who was runner up in last year’s poll to Victoria Beckham, and new mum Myleene, who gave birth in August, were considered the yummiest celebrity mums both garnering 18% of the vote. Angelina Jolie (15%), Kate Winslet (14%) and Davina McCall (10%) came in third, fourth and fifth places respectively (full top ten below).

At the other end of the spectrum, almost half of the nation has shown that Britney Spears can beat off all the competition to win the Slummy Mummy of the year title (49%). The mum of two was voted the most scruffy, unkempt and un-yummiest mummy of all. Runner up in this category was Kerry Katona who scooped 24% of the vote.

The Dishy Daddy of the year, last year won by David Beckham, was voted as Brad Pitt by a third of the population (33%). Brad has quickly grown a large family, becoming father to four children with Angelina Jolie. Ewan McGregor was second, beating last year’s winner David Beckham into third place, with Phillip Schofield and Jude Law in fourth and fifth position (19%, 15%, 8% and 8% respectively). A perhaps surprising new entry into the poll this year was Gordon Brown, who came in at number nine, beating TV’s Richard Madeley.

The survey was carried out by children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent to mark National Yummy Mummy Week (15-23 Sept), which celebrates real life mums.
