Viewers of 'The Last Leg' have voted Jeremy Hunt 'Dick of the Year'.

In honour a piñata of the Health Secretary's likeness was then beaten to a pulp.

Host Adam Hills said: "Are you watching this Jeremy Hunt?

"You said yesterday you're launching an enquiry into why morale is so low amongst NHS junior Doctors.

"Are you kidding me?! That's like Harold Shipman launching an investigation into patient mortality rates."

#DickHunt even began trending.

To celebrate further they even created a game where you can bugle Hunt to your heart's content.

To celebrate our #dickoftheyear, we've a very special website! Have a play with #huntjeremy yourself! #juniordoctors

Other contenders for the title were Donald Trump, who came second, Martin Shkreli, and Walter Palmer, killer of Cecil the Lion.

Hunt announced on Thursday he will impose a contract on junior doctors after negotiations between the BMA and the government failed.

Royal colleges and unions have expressed dismay at the Health Secretary's move, which comes after weeks of deadlock.

The British Medical Association (BMA) said it would "consider all options", raising the possibility of further strikes in the battle over pay and conditions.

It's no the first time Hunt has been the subject of 'The Last Leg' - they are particularly fond of trolling him with a tuba.
