Jackpotjoy.com challenges celebrities to have more fun and take part in its newly-launched FUNdation that grants FUNds for daft ideas! Victoria Beckham, Jeremy Clarkson, Tom Cruise and Madonna have been voted the least fun celebrities according to research commissioned by leading bingo website Jackpotjoy.com.
The sullen-faced figures have topped a poll of stars and politicians that Brits consider to be fun sponges.
In response, Jackpotjoy has invited the celebrities to join in its all-new £250,000 FUNdation on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/jackpotjoy) that grants funds and rewards for daft ideas to make the UK laugh more and enjoy some fun.
The lion’s share of votes was scooped by Victoria Beckham, 23% of all research respondents selected her. Despite being married to one of the world’s most desirable men, the artist formerly known as ‘Posh Spice’ is rarely seen without her trademark pout. Beckham was followed by Top Gear’s resident grumpy old man, Jeremy Clarkson, devout Scientologist, Tom Cruise, who were both named by 6% of all respondents, and Madonna with 5% of the vote. Other celebs who failed to pass the fun test included TV’s ‘Mr Nasty’, Simon Cowell and Twilight’s Kristen Stewart who both clocked up 5% of the vote.
Politicians are rarely recognised for their sense of humour so respondents were spoiled for choice in naming the least fun MP. Gordon Brown was on top of the poll with 17% naming him the least fun, followed by John Major (9%) and the current Labour Party leader, Ed Milliband (8%).
However, it seems that Brits still turn to fun-loving celebs to provide us with some light relief in challenging times – TV’s ‘Chatty Man’, Alan Carr, was named as the most fun celeb by one fifth of those polled, followed by the comedian Russell Brand, who was named by one in ten respondents. Party girl Rihanna was a close third with 9% of responses, followed by actress Cameron Diaz (8%) and Jonathan Ross (7%).
Bumbling Boris Johnson was the clear winner of the ‘most fun politician’ category, racking up 17% of the votes, compared to David Cameron’s measly 1%. The Prime Minster was even beaten in the fun stakes by former British Liberal Democrat Lembit Opik, John Prescott and William Hague.
The Jackpotjoy FUNdation is live now. Everybody who wants to take life a little bit less seriously should participate. Jackpotjoy will choose winners and they will either receive FUNding to make their fun ideas a reality, or a cash REWARD for performing their daft deeds. So whether Victoria Beckham wants to bathe in a tub of baked beans, or Jeremy Clarkson pledges to moon out of a mini, the FUNdation is open to everybody and any ideas. So come join and bring back the fun into your life!
