Receiving the highest votes as the most handy dad, the former husband of Katie Price said being a father is his most important role.

Aussie pop star has been named Celebrity Dad of the Year by a parenting club in his adopted Britain. The singer and reality TV star, who is a doting dad to four-year-old Junior and Princess Tiaamii, two, saw off competition from singer Gary Barlow to take home the title.

The singer has always maintained his kids' wellbeing is his highest priority, following his split from their mum, glamor model , last year. Accepting the prize, Andre said, "This feels so good. It's been a turnaround year for me and the kids and it's an honor to be the subject of the public's support and best wishes. This means a huge amount to me as being a dad is my most important role."

More than 35,000 votes were cast in the Celebrity Dad of the Year survey.
