Controversial TV personality Katie Hopkins has been shortlisted for an award honouring the nation's best celebrity mothers.

The outspoken former Apprentice candidate was named among the country's top 10 celeb mums after a public vote - despite frequently being labelled Britain's most hated woman.

The Celebrity Mum of the Year 2015 shortlist also includes TV presenter Holly Willoughby, Celebrity Big Brother winner Katie Price and X Factor winner Sam Bailey.

Mum-of-three Hopkins has earned notoriety for being unapologetic about her divisive comments, which include telling a breakfast TV programme that she would not want her children mixing with kids named Tyler or Charmaine.

It comes after X Factor mogul Simon Cowell scotched rumours she was in line to become a judge on Britain's Got Talent.

"I would rather take a bath, fill it with vinegar, cut myself a thousand times, immerse myself slowly for an hour, than work with her," Mr Cowell said last night.

The winner of Celebrity Mum of the Year 2015 will be chosen after a second round of voting which closes on Tuesday.
