London: Peter Andre has been crowned Celebrity Dad of the Year 2010.

The "Mysterious Girl" singer, who raises three children after splitting with model ex-wife Katie Price, was thrilled to be given the award by Bounty Parenting Club, which received 35,000 votes to determine the winner, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"This feels so good. It`s been a turnaround year for me and the kids and it`s an honour to be the subject of public support and wishes. This means a huge amount to me as being a dad is my most important role," Andre said.

Andre and Price split last year and since then he has taken care of his two children Junior, 5, and Princess Tiaamii, 2, and his eight-year-old stepson Harvey, the model`s child from a previous relationship.

Jeff Brazier, father of late "Celebrity Big Brother" star Jade Goody`s two sons, came second in the voting.

Take That singer Gary Barlow came at third place while his bandmate Mark Owen and British TV presenter Vernon Kay came at the bottom.
