David Tennant Is Greenest Star
Doctor Who actor David Tennant has been named the Greenest Star on the Planet.
Tennant won the title after receiving the most votes out of the top ten celebrities in Playhouse Disney's Playing for the Planet Awards.
Families across the UK voted online choosing the Time Lord as their favourite eco-friendly star in the shortlist which included Sienna Miller, Lily Allen, Lily Cole, Stella McCartney, Madonna and Johnny Depp. Star couple Gwyneth Paltrow and husband Chris Martin earned a joint nomination.
Tennant - who is currently appearing in Hamlet with The Royal Shakespeare Company - drives a hybrid car and actively encourages everyone around him to get involved and save the planet as his alter ego The Doctor would do.
Peter Duncan, awards judge and ambassador said: "I am delighted that David Tennant has won the Greenest Star award - he's a great role model for kids everywhere and clearly is as passionate at saving the planet as his character 'The Doctor'.
"As we enter the final judging stage for the rest of the categories, I'm looking forward to seeing some fantastic entries from eco-heroes all over the country."
The Playing for The Planet campaign launched last year to help pave the way for a whole new generation of pre-school kids to grow up green.
I've noticed he seems to be very concerned about the environment. What a nice honor for him.
