Big Brother Claire wins Rear of the Year


Celebrity Big Brother star Claire Sweeney and 'Nasty' Nick Cotton actor, John Altman, have been crowned this year's male and female Rear of the Year.

The annual title, now in its 19th year, was announced to coincide with National Bottom Week. Both soap stars have their own keep-fit regimes to help keep their rears in trim.

Claire cycles regularly and goes to the gym while EastEnder Altman goes swimming and jogging.

Brookside actress Sweeney said she did not think her bottom was her best asset and added she longed for a supermodel figure.

She said: "I would just love to have a body like Cindy Crawford, she is just fantastic. My best asset, however, is probably my smile. I smile all the time - I just love smiling."

Altman, on the other hand, was less humble, commenting that his rear had been the subject of many compliments from women down the years.

He said: "It is the one physical asset you never really get to see yourself so you can't really judge it one way or the other.

"But I'm delighted it has now received the top accolade and both my rear and I will do our best to live up to the honour."

Previous winners of the accolade include Denise Van Outen, Ulrika Jonsson and Robbie Williams.

Last year's female winner was former Coronation Street barmaid Jane Danson with Graham Norton taking the male award.
