THE NEW OINK! AWARDS 2014 - RESULTS

Here we go then!  Thanks to everyone who responded with their nominees for the updated 2014 Oink! Awards!  If you're just joining us you can catch up on the original 1987 ceremony by clicking here to see the fantastic celebrity turnout for the original event.

For those in the know, you'll remember the Oink! readers were asked to nominate in some very dubious categories and those who 'won' each would be safe in the knowledge of knowing exactly how the youngsters of the time felt about them!  The categories were as follows:


Well recently I thought it'd be a fun idea to ask readers of this blog and members of the Oink! Facebook group to vote in the exact same categories but for today's celebrities, songs (Worst Pop Record of '13/'14 for example), TV shows etc.  I've had a great reaction to this and so now here come the results as voted for by you!

I've spared no expense in setting this up, inviting back H.R.H. herself as you can see:
