The Great British public have voted for Britain’s tastiest and not-so-tasty celebrities. Hundreds of votes were cast online to choose the celebrity winners in thirteen categories ranging from sport and radio to television and politics. The voters needed to consider the celebrities’ looks, personality, behaviour and style when casting their vote.
Now, we aren’t talking about those that cook you a sausage for breakfast, although the SAUSIE awards are sponsored by one of the British sausage brands, Porky Whites. On Thursday, October 25th, the results were revealed telling us who you chose as the nation’s epitome of taste and the ones who aren’t the best on the buffet cart. The winners of the SAUSIES are:
The Tastiest TV Duo: This Morning’s Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby
Holly and Phil were chosen as the tastiest TV duo with almost fifty percent of all votes in their favour. They came out ahead of contender’s Tess and Claudia from Strictly Come Dancing, and Sandi and Noel from The Great British Bake Off. One voter stated that Phil and Holly have good chemistry and go together like mash and sausages.
Tastiest Male Celebrity: Tom Hardy
Tom Hardy, a former model now turned actor and film producer won the award for the tastiest male. Another voter said that Tom’s not only an extremely good-looking man, but he’s an amazing actor and an animal lover.
Tastiest Female Celebrity: ITV’s Holly Willoughby
Holly won her second SAUSIE as 2018’s tastiest female celebrity. She came ahead of Stacey Solomon and Emma Willis to claim first place. A male voter stated that he would love to share a sausage with Holly (no pun intended); and another voter said that Holly is funny, gorgeous and a genuine person.
Tastiest Male Breakfast TV Presenter: GMB’s Ben Shephard
The 2018 SAUSIE for tastiest male breakfast presenter was snagged by Good Morning Britain’s Ben Shephard, who claimed it over his fellow presenter Piers Morgan. Votes show that Shephard received almost one-third of all votes with regular comments on his good looks and cheeky personality. BBC’s Dan Walker, a rival of Morgan’s, came third.
Tastiest Female Breakfast TV Presenter: Good Morning Britain’s Susanna Reid
The 2018 SAUSIE for tastiest female breakfast presenter was awarded to Good Morning Britain’s Susanna Reid. According to one voter, Susanna is an outstanding interview who is also funny and attractive. Another voter said that she should win the award because she has to deal with Piers Morgan, showing she has the patience of a saint. Susanna claims the title over her GMB’s Kate Garraway and BBC’s Louise Minchin.
Tastiest Sportsman: David Beckham
Even after all these years, Beckham still has it! Winning the tastiest sportsman award ahead of Max Whitlock and Antony Joshua, Beckham shows he is still a formidable character. One voter remarked that he’s a handsome guy and is ageing well.
Tastiest Sportswoman: Jessica Ennis-Hill
Dame Jessica is one of the most acclaimed athletes in British history, and now she can add the SAUSIE award for tastiest sportswoman to her awards list. A voter stated that she is a great role model for the youth, inspiring and beautiful from the inside out.
Tastiest Male TV Chef: Gordon Ramsey
Winning the award for the tastiest male TV chef award, Gordon Ramsey has grabbed the title ahead of James Martin and Jamie Oliver. Ramsey’s outspoken nature, culinary skills and professionalism make him a hit with voters and someone they would love to cook for them.
Tastiest Female TV Chef: Nigella Lawson
Despite the recent disagreement with Dawn French regarding the most appropriate way to serve a scone – the jam or cream first? Nigella Lawson was voted the tastiest female TV chef in this year’s SAUSIE awards. Her sophistication, sex appeal and domestic goddess personality helped her clinch the award ahead of Lorraine Pascale and Nadiya Hussain.
In addition to the tastiest celebrities, there are also two SAUSIE awards for the least tasty or tasteless celebrities.
Tasteless Celebrity: Katie Hopkins
Of all nominations, Katie Hopkins was considered the most distasteful celebrity in the category. She edged ahead of Katie Price who won second place, and the ‘loathe him or love him’ Piers Morgan in the third position. One voter stated that Katie is a real toad – vile and rude.
Tasteless Politician: Theresa May
Of all the politicians listed, Theresa May was considered the most distasteful. She was followed closely by Boris Johnson, who voters thought made some of the most tasteless remarks and comments throughout the year. Jeremy Corbyn came in third. A voter stated that Theresa May’s dance moves are enough to put anyone off her.
Congratulations to all the winners and runners-up who have shown they have an impeccably good taste. As for the tasteless losers, well there is next year to put things right.
