Torchwood and Doctor Who’s John Barrowman crowned Rear of the Year

Stop Press! Fans agree that the Captain Jack actor and Coronation Street's Shobna Gulati have superior posteriors

Fans have really got behind Doctor Who star John Barrowman to vote him this year’s Rear of the Year.


“With tush tightly toned, cheeks firmly clenched and a big smile on my face, I’m thrilled to be awarded the accolade,” said Barrowman, who plays Captain Jack Harkness in the sci-fi series and its spin-off Torchwood.

Barrowman adds his name to a role of superior posteriors that includes last year’s winner Anton Du Beke and Take That’s Gary Barlow.

Shobna Gulati, aka Coronation Street’s Sunita Alahan, was named top female bottom, inheriting the title from Carol Vorderman.

“I am really honoured and flattered to be a winner of this year’s competition and for my bum to be etched into the history of the award’s alumni – a list which includes so many other distinguished bottoms,” said Gulati.


“I’d also like to say thanks,” she added. “In the words of, ’I got it from my mama’.”
