Jamie & Jules Oliver Crowned UK’s Favourite Famous Family Beating ‘Set-to-Split’ Katie & Peter

May 12, 2009

LONDON, May 12 /PRNewswire/ — According to a poll from
http://www.bounty.com, the UK’s favourite parenting club, TV Chef and
champion of children’s healthy eating, Jamie Oliver and his supportive wife
Jules have been named as the famous family that British parents would most
like their own family to be like. Surprisingly, despite announcing their
split yesterday and winning a libel trial over an article portraying them as
bad parents, Katie Price & Peter Andre were only just beaten to the top spot
by 6% of the votes.

Parents of three girls, Jamie and Jules have been married for nine years
this summer and their traditional set up clearly appeals to modern parents,
with nearly 1 in 3 parents choosing the Olivers over other celebrity parents.

Faye Mingo of parenting website Bounty.com, who carried out the survey,
said, “It’s no surprise the Oliver family have been voted number one. They
represent a perfectly matched partnership. Jamie’s down-to-earth personality,
coupled with Jules supportive nature, makes for a strong relationship.
Despite the announcement of Katie and Peter’s spilt the couple had become
well known for being focused on their family.”

Jamie and Jules fought off stiff competition from a range of famous
parents including America’s first couple Barack & Michelle Obama who scooped
third place.

Surprisingly, America’s fictional family of misfits, The Simpsons beat
the ‘Brangelina’ clan to fourth place. Whilst Gordon and Sarah Brown limped
in last alongside Madonna.

The results for favourite famous family, as voted by members of Bounty
Parenting Club, were as follows:

    1st Jamie & Jules Oliver
    2nd Katie Price & Peter Andre
    3rd Barack & Michelle Obama
    4th The Simpsons
    5th Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie
    6th Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin
    7th Charlotte Church & Gavin Henson
    8th The Beckhams
    9th Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes
    10th Ricky & Bianca Butcher
