Julia Hartley-Brewer's knee wins The talkRADIO Person Of The Year

Julia Hartley-Brewer's knee was up against some strong competition

Thursday, December 7, 2017

Forget Time Magazine's Person Of The Year, we all know the award everyone wants is The talkRADIO Person Of The Year.

Jon Holmes had the honour of announcing the winner on his show today (December 7).

The nominees were Lord Buckethead, who stood against Theresa May in the general election; Julia Hartley-Brewer's knee, which was famously touched by Michael Fallon who later resigned over inappropriate behaviour; Marion Kelly, the little girl who walked into the room where her father Robert Kelly was doing an interview with the BBC about North Korea; and Melania Trump's body double, as it is claimed a mystery person fills in for the First Lady sometimes.

Of course, the winner was Julia Hartley-Brewer's knee and she joined Jon Holmes on air as he announced that she had won.

She said "I'm overwhelmed" but admitted she knew her knee would end up "on all the end-of-year quizzes" the moment her story broke.

But she did think Marion should have won and added "very unusual that my knees have won an award and not my motormouth."
