Amy Winehouse’s husband voted Britains top Anti-IconJanuary 4th, 2008 - 2:24 pm ICT by admin
London, Jan 4 (ANI): Troubled star Amy Winehouse’s husband Blake Fielder-Civil has been voted Britain’s top Anti-Icon
Readers of men’s magazine Arena compiled a list of “witless” male celebrities who least deserve their place in the spotlight.
Fielder-Civil, currently on remand in Pentonville Prison awaiting trial, headed the top 10 as the “worst husband ever”.
“If your wife is partial to a nice bit of heroin then you should probably help her out by abstaining from drugs yourself, not standing on the sidelines chanting ‘plunge it down, you Zulu warrior’ or whatever it is junkies shout to egg each other on,” the Independent quoted the magazine, as stating.
Graffiti artist Banksy secured the second position on the list.
Arena said: “Banksy is mainly lauded by sixth-formers whose minds are so fogged by hormones that they believe stencils of policemen kissing passes for caustic social commentary. Less enamoured with his work are the taxpayers who spend PS1bn cleaning graffiti in the UK each year, money which would arguably be better spent paying nurses, or even gay policemen.”
The England and Chelsea footballer Frank Lampard came in the anti-icon list third for his lacklustre display in the Euro 2008 qualifiers.
The falsetto-voiced singer Mika was fourth, followed by the daytime television host Jeremy Kyle, whose chat show was once described by a judge as “bear-baiting”.
Peter Andre was sixth for forming “half of Britain’s most over-exposed couple” with his model wife, Katie Price, aka Jordan followed by the former Big Brother housemate Ziggy.
Singer Prince, the presenters Ant and Dec, and Top Gear’s Richard Hammond rounded off the Top 10 list.
The top 10 male Anti-Idol male stars are:
1. Blake Fielder-Civil
3. Frank Lampard
5. Jeremy Kyle
6. Peter Andre
9. Ant and Dec
10. Richard Hammond
