PIPPA GETS THE SHAFT!

Pippa Middleton fans are unhappy that Carol Vorderman won Rear of the Year. But despite much talk of her rear and a flurry of bets being placed on Pippa to win, she was beaten to the ‘prestigious’ accolade by former TV presenter Carol Vorderman.The decision to award Vorderman the prize didn’t go down with the Pippa’s legion of fans, with one writing on Twitter: ‘Carol Vorderman won “Rear Of The Year”? Over Pippa? YOU WOT!?!?’

Some have suggested the award was a fix, with bookmaker Paddy Power making the decision to refund anyone who placed a bet on Pippa.

A spokesman for Paddy Power said: ‘This is a bum wrap if ever there was one. Pippa winning the 2011 Rear of the Year was a greater certainty than Usain Bolt winning a one man race.  We are only too happy to refund losing bets placed on Pippa, it’s the right thing to do.’

Pippa herself didn’t seem particularly fussed about missing out on the award as she enjoyed the tennis at Queen’s today, braving the rain to cheer on Andy Murray.
