Cheeky Bressie voted Best Bum of Ireland

THE Voice of Ireland hunk Bressie may prefer to play down his status as a heart-throb but despite his best intentions, his endeavours to be known for his music and not his physique continue to be thwarted.

This week sees the Mullingar musician winning another award after his fans voted for him in their droves to claim victory in the cheeky online contest 'Best Bum of Ireland 2012'.

Organised by stylist Darren Kennedy, members of the public have been voting for different categories via his website helpmystyle.ie. It saw Bressie going up against the likes of Chris O'Dowd, Jennifer Maguire and rugby hero Tommy Bowe.

Darren explained how over 13,000 votes were cast -- and it was a closely run contest, with Bressie pipping Ronan Keating to the post by a mere three votes. Commenting on winning the tongue-in-cheek accolade, the single star tried to play it down in typical Bressie fashion, pointing out how he didn't really rate that body part himself, adding: "Even my mother says I don't have an a***."
