Some have suggested the award was a fix, with bookmaker Paddy Power making the decision to refund anyone who placed a bet on Pippa.
Carol Vorderman and Strictly Come Dancing star Anton du Beke won Rear Of The Year
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.
