Baby Spice claims Foxy Bingo Celeb Mum of Year crown

The results of the Foxy Bingo Celeb Mum of the Year vote are now in and the winner is radio presenter and Spice Girl Emma Bunton. Last year’s winner Katie Price dropped to 7th place and none of the mums to be who have not yet had their children got a look in.\r\n\r\nOnline bingo players at Foxy Bingo made 2013 a record year for votes in this highly regarded award and ‘Baby’ Spice took nearly one third of those votes, making Emma one of the most popular winners of recent years.\r\n\r\nMore than 10,000 people took the time and trouble to visit Foxy Bingo to cast a vote for their favourite mum. Before the results were announced many people assumed that the popularity of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge would mean an easy victory, but given that she is only expecting her first child – which everyone is now expecting to be a girl – that would not have been a true reflection of what the award is all about. The Celeb Mum of the Year Award was instigated to reward and showcase inspirational mums from the world of showbiz who could be regarded as good role models for the real world.\r\n\r\nWhile Emma Bunton took the top spot, Michelle Heaton of newly reformed Liberty X took 2nd place and Claire Richards from Steps took 3rd. Again both these ladies had busy years in 2012. Michelle underwent major surgery that involved having her breasts removed to prevent cancer developing and she has taken part in The Big Reunion TV show bringing her band back together for the cameras. Claire was on TV as Steps came back together and started touring again and as a high profile contestant in Celebrity Big Brother.\r\n\r\nNot many people may yet know Emma Bunton as a radio presenter, but she recently took over the Heart 106.2 Breakfast show and is doing a fine job. She has two young boys, Beau who is 5 and Tate who is 2 and so juggles work and motherhood like millions of others.\r\n\r\nEmma said of her win: “I couldn’t ask for more this Mother’s Day than to have my two boys around me and this award on my mantelpiece! The best thing about winning Foxy Bingo Celebrity Mum of the Year is that it’s chosen by YOU, the British public. I’m so honoured that thousands of you picked me, thank you to everyone who voted! This award is extra special because this is the most important thing – being a Mummy!! So here’s to you fabulous Mums this Mother’s Day.”\r\n\r\nThe Foxy Bingo Celebrity Mum of the Year top 10:\r\n\r\n1. Emma Bunton\r\n\r\n2. Michelle Heaton\r\n\r\n3. Claire Richards\r\n\r\n4.
