Gareth is tops with kids

Gareth Gates was today crowned children’s favourite for the second year running when he scooped the Best Male gong at the Disney Channel Kids Awards.

The Pop Idol winner pipped a host of other nominees to take the award at the bash held at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Dannii Minogue – who performed two of her hits for the audience – took the Best Female award while urban outfit Big Brovaz grabbed the Best Group accolade.

Other winners at the ceremony included Busted, who won the Best Newcomer category, and Girls Aloud who collected the Best Single award for their number one hit Sound Of The Underground.

Fans watching the bash were also treated to a world television exclusive performance by Craig David of his new single, World Filled With Love.

The star also picked up a gong for Best Studio Disney Performance.
