Well done Dave, WAG.
Gun that Adam Stansfield got a mention as well.
Delighted AP won it.
Heartbreaking seeing Seve though, he looked blind during his clip as he certainly wasn't focussing on the camera.
A second consecutive year of farce in the main award - sports personality of the year should recognise what people have done in the year, not over their career.
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
SPOTY votes: McCoy 293,152
Amy W 43,056
Not even close
Bloody hell, Swann and Haye coming in with far fewer votes than I imagined they would.
Still lolling at the thought of a British person having a personality.

Cbf with it this year. The shortlist is always such bull****. This year, Mo Farah won gold in the 5000m & 10000m at the European Championships and broke the British 5000m record and the British 10000m road record. Sailor Ed Wright won the World Cup series and came 2nd in the European Championships in the finn class and won the finn Gold Cup (which I think is officially a world championship). And they miss out to a boxer who won one fight and one farce, and someone who is very good at throwing a large needle less than 8 foot.

BBC Sport - BBC announce 2011 Sports Personality of the Year top 10
It's that time again, when we look at some of the nominations and go what the **** did they do? I mean Andy Murray ffs. Amir Khan is pretty dubious as well, the guy who seems to want to follow in the footsteps of **** Naseem Hamed (to give him his official title) and trying their best to kill someone on the road whilst leading a flashy yet ultimately unsuccessful boxing career.
I would have thought that a cricketer would be an obvious choice, but it seems Cavendish and Clarke are the two that are way ahead in terms of odds. Cook and Strauss are long shots.

Is it that time of year already? Such a crap event. A series of meaningless awards that nobody (including those receiving them) give a **** about, which are given a very glamorous ceremony which is no doubt very expensive and paid for my the license payer. All of this is made worse of course by totally insincere interviews with the nominated "personalities" in which they roll out the usual cliches and try desperately to convince the poor people watching at home that this is a legitimate use of broadcast space.
"I've always dreamt of captaining England, and winning the Ashes, and I was so lucky to accomplish that, but it doesn't compare how privileged I feel at being nominated for sports personality of the year"
Yeah its just a bit too crap for me to get angry about though.
Cavendish has got to win though, guy is the best British sportsman by a mile.
Actually, having said that, I do remember the giving of the lifetime achievement award to Bobby Robson a few years back, which was actually incredibly moving. So it's not always total dirge, just mostly.
Hey that is a Kingsclere hero you are calling awful.
