Pippa Middleton's derriere may have taken the world by storm during the Royal Wedding in April, but the future King's sister-in-law wasn't able to snag the title of England's best rear-end.

Instead, the annual award went to game-show host Carol Vorderman, with Middleton coming in second place.

Now, there is a bit of a catch: Voting for best rear end took place over the course of the year, while Middleton and her backside only really entered into the public consciousness six weeks ago.

Nevertheless, Voderman is is savoring her victory:

"I am really surprised and flattered to get this award, particularly at this stage of my life," said the 50-year-old. "I always suspected there were a lot of people out there who were glad to see the back of me, so this has turned out to be very funny indeed.''

So far, there has been no response from Middleton, whose "Ass Appreciation Society" on Facebook has over 230,000 admirers.

Of course, the proper response to such a defeat would be to simply turn around.

Read on to see both rumps in action, and decide for yourself.
