With Father’s Day on the horizon, online greeting card retailer has undertaken research in to who the great British public feel is the best celebrity Dad.

Top of the pile with 23% of the vote is traditionally protective Dad Bob Geldof who famously adopted ex-wife Paula Yates and Michael Hutchence’s daughter Tiger-Lily and took her in as his own. Unsurprisingly in second place with 20% of the vote is England’s favourite football captain David Beckham. It seems Jamie Oliver’s work over the last year with improving school dinners has put him in high esteem, as he comes in 3rd with 17% of the vote.

Dads quite often play second fiddle to Mums it seems with Mother’s Day traditionally being significantly more commercial than Father’s Day. It’s about time Dad’s received some recognition for their hard work, and so the public has voted!

Why are Dad’s and Father’s Day becoming more important? According to an Equal Opportunities Commission report published last year no less than 94% of fathers took time off work when their baby was born. Almost eight out of ten fathers said that they would be happy to stay at home and look after their baby, given the choice and just one in five believed that a mother's place is in the home, compared with more than half interviewed for a similar survey 20 years ago.

Why not say thank you to your favourite Dad on Father’s Day this year with a personalised greeting card from from £1.99. Simply log on to, choose your card, personalise and post!
