  Will Young wins top TV award
Updated 20 December 2002, 07.21
Will Young at Children in Need 2002
Will Young's topped off a cracking year by winning the Television Personality of the Year award.

The 23-year-old Pop Idol beat off Ant and Dec, Cat Deeley and Graham Norton to take the title of the UK's best-loved TV star.

The award was voted for by readers of TV Choice, TV Quick, TV Times and What's On TV magazines.

Amazing year

Will beat off Cat Deely for the award
Since winning the make-a-pop-star show Pop Idol in February Will's debut single Evergreen/Anything Is Possible became the fastest selling single of all time.

It shifted more than a million copies in its first week.

And his album, From Now On, also went straight in at number one and earlier this month Evergreen was voted Record of the Year.

What a year!
