'I'm nominated to get you talking about it!' Natasha Giggs defends the decision on why she could win Celebrity Mum Of The Year

She may be relishing her notoriety following a stint on Celebrity Big Brother, but Natasha Giggs is under no illusion of why she is famous.

The scandalous beauty – who had an eight year affair with her husband Rhodri's brother, footballer Ryan Giggs – has also offered some insight on why she was nominated for Celebrity Mum Of The Year.

Natasha claims she is in the running against the likes of Danielle Lloyd, Katie Price and Holly Willoughby to get people 'talkin about it'.

Following a torrent of online abuse,
Natasha defended herself by tweeting back: 'For the losers STILL on at
me 4 bein up 4 mum of the year can u not see I was nominated to get u
all talkin about it And u fell 4 it #mugs.'

However, while the 29-year-old obviously has a point, there is no denying her questionable morality for falling into bed with her children's uncle.

Five-year-old Louis is Ryan's nephew through the blood line, being Rhodri's biological son, while Liam, 10, is from a previous relationship.

While another tweeted: 'Natasha Giggs nominated for Mother of the Year Whaaaat Who is on the shortlist for Father of the Year Joseph Fritzl'

A third user seemed to focus on Natasha's celebrity status rather than her parenting skills, saying: 'natasha giggs nominated for celebrity mum of the year reaaalllyyy.. she's not even a celebrity for starters..'

But it seems Natasha isn't the only name on the Foxy Bingo list which will incite a little heated debate over whether or not they deserve the title.

Denise Welch, who starred on the same series of CBB as Natasha, was accused of cheating on husband Tim Healy with her toyboy lover Lincoln Townley – but maintains they had been separated 'for some time'.

nominated, despite being criticised for featuring six-year-old daughter
Madison on the show last month.
