McFly star Tom Fletcher has won Celebrity Dad of the Year, beating Simon Cowell to the title.

The X Factor mogul was among the stars shortlisted for the accolade, but lost out to the 28-year-old singer-songwriter in a public vote.

Fletcher - who became a father to son Buzz Michelangelo in March this year - won many plaudits for his doting posts about his son on social media.

He famously documented single day of his wife Giovanna's pregnancy in while serenading her bump in a touching time-lapse video.

He takes the title from Olympic medallist Mo Farah.

Not sure if falling asleep in the pool is the best approach to learning how to swim. Nevertheless Buzz was loving it before the nap!

His video My Wedding Speech, where he sings on his wedding day instead of giving a speech, was one of the most watched YouTube videos in the UK last year.
