Becks? Elton? Marvin? Shortlist For Celebrity Dad Of The Year Is Revealed

Becks? Elton? Marvin? Shortlist for Celebrity Dad of the Year is revealed

With Father's Day fast approaching, Britain's most famous dads are crossing their fingers to be crowned Celebrity Dad of the Year 2013.

Leading the pack is (who else?) the world most's iconic, well, everything really, David Beckham, who has wooed and wowed showbiz followers with his public displays of hands-on fatherly affection for his three sons, but most of all, toddler Harper Seven.

But there are some other contenders to take seriously, including JLS singer Marvin Humes – who has only been a dad for five minutes; Mo Farrah, whose cuddles with his daughter warmed the nation's hearts at last summer's Olympics; Wayne Rooney, who has just become a dad for the second time, to Klay; Elton John and David Furnish, who would presumably have to share the prize; and Fabrice Muamba, who collapsed and almost died on a football field.

In alphabetical order, this year's shortlist for Celebrity Dad of the Year 2013 is:

1. Ben Foden

2. Chris Evans

3. David Beckham

4. David Furnish

5. David Walliams

6. David Weir
