This competition has now closed, and our celebrity judges are picking their final 5 mums.
Do you have or know an amazing mum? Someone who goes that extra mile for others? Someone who has overcome personal challenges for her family? Or maybe she is just simply the most kind-hearted person you know. If so – HELLO! would LOVE to hear about her. We have partnered with Facebook this Mother’s Day to launch our Search for a Star Mum, along with a panel of celebrity mums, including Kimberly Walsh, Tamara Ecclestone and Penny Lancaster - who will all be helping us in this very special quest.
Our winning star mum will be treated to an overnight stay for two at the five-star Mandarin Oriental hotel in London, along with being treated to lunch at chic restaurant Bar Boulud. But that’s not all! Our winner will get pampered at the hotel’s luxurious spa by none other than Linda Meredith – renown facilaist to the celebs. They will also receive tickets for two to a West End show, along with the opportunity to experience what it’s like to be in the spotlight by starring in their very own HELLO! photo shoot.
Do you know an amazing mum to enter into our Search for Star Mum competition?
If you want to nominate a mum in a million, write to us and tell us in no more than 300 words why she is such a star. Submit your entry, along with a picture of your nominated mum here.
Entries close at midnight on Thursday, March 9th. Our panel of super celebrity mums will then compile a shortlist, with the final five being put to the public vote.
Stage and singing star Kimberley Walsh, mum to two-year-old Bobby, and baby Cole, aged three months, told HELLO! :“I’m delighted to be part of this panel and the search for a star mum. Being a mum is the best, but one of the hardest jobs in the world and I have so much respect for every single mother out there doing the best they can for their children on a daily basis. It's a wonderful thing to celebrate and I can't wait to hear about these amazing women and their stories.”
Kimberly Walsh is among the celebrity panel, who will crown the ultimate 'Star Mum'
She is joined by Loose Women panelist and model Penny Lancaster, herself a mum to two boys with her rock star husband Rod Stewart, Alastair, 11 and Aiden, six. ““It's so great to see mums being celebrated in this way. So often, mums are the unsung heroes of daily life, the glue that holds it all together, and they do it with little expectation of reward. I cannot wait to read our star mums' stories and the qualities that make them special - I've a feeling it's going to be emotional!"
Also joining us are BBC news anchor Kate Silverton, mum to Clemency, five and Wilbur, two; champion swimmer Rebecca Adlington, mum to one-year-old Summer, businesswoman Tamara Ecclestone, mum to Sophia, aged two and HELLO! blogger Jessica Knowles, mum to two-year-old son Eddie from her marriage to TV star and DIY SOS host Nick.
“Celebrating mums is so important,” adds Tamara. “I can't wait to look through the entries. Picking a winner is not going to be an easy task, as there are so many amazing mothers out there doing a brilliant job every day.”
