McBusted star Tom Fletcher has beaten Simon Cowell to the title of Celebrity Dad of the Year.

The X Factor mogul was among the shortlisted stars, but lost out to the 28-year-old singer-songwriter.

Fletcher – who became a father to son Buzz Michelangelo in March this year – won the public vote to be named Marvel Celebrity Dad of the Year 2014.

The musician won the nation's heart thanks to his doting posts about Buzz on social media, including documenting every single day of his wife Giovanna's pregnancy while serenading her bump in a touching video.

He takes the title from Olympic medallist Mo Farah.

Fletcher said: "I apologise – sorry, Simon Cowell and Mo Farah!"
