Steve Heapy,, Chief Executive, said: "We’ve been amazed at how this competition has captured the nation’s imagination and also at the effort all the finalists have put into the public vote.  People have been running ad campaigns, getting local celebrities on board and even body painting themselves to drum up support – it’s been incredible!  I want to congratulate Paul for being a very worthy winner and hope he has fantastic time on his very own private party plane.”
