You'll remember, as part of Giles Week, we asked our artistically-talented readers to design a new creature character to join Mr Deacon's resident Gonks [above]. Entries came in thick and fast with many wonderful and wacky characters to entertain the *ahem* highly respected judging panel consisting of Grazia Daily and the designer himself. We've since been bombarded with reader requests to announce the winner and, today, the wait is over.
Yes, we can announce the GONK-OLYMPICS Winner is...DRUM ROLL PLEASE...
...Sarah Woodhams! So why this one, Giles? ‘I like the idea of a bunny wearing star sunglasses.’ Hmm, we think it may have subliminally reminded him of funk music legend, Bootsy Collins, don't you?
So we send a huge congratulations to Sarah who has won a gorgeous necklace designed by Mr D himself. And thank you to all of you who entered your fabulous creations for the GONK-OLYMPICS. You've proved yourselves to be a very creative bunch.
