Adverts as news stories #28

From the BBC

Peter Kay voted UK's top comedian

Phoenix Nights star Peter Kay has been overwhelmingly voted the UK's favourite comedian in an online poll.

The 33-year-old, whose observational comedy routines are rooted in his Bolton upbringing, was chosen by 63% of the 3,000 adults polled.


The survey was conducted for the online bank Smile in November.

Its not an entertainment news story, its an advert for a bank.

And, hang on, a sample size of 3,000 is enough to get featured on the BBC news website frontpage is it? I could do that.
