Rob Conn from Bristol is Mr GAY UK 2002. In conjunction with phone and text message voting, celebrity judges decided that the 26 year old IT Systems Manager was this year's winner. Second place went to Carl Farrar, representing Woking and Jack Jefferson representing Cardiff came in third place.
He won his award at Friday night's finals held at Birmingham's Nightingale club. This was the 10th anniversary of the competition and organiser Terry George told us "The contest continues to go from strength to strength. We have had more heats and more contestants than before and the popularity of the event is larger than ever."
The judging panel at Friday night's event which was hosted by Craig Phillips, winner of the first Big Brother comprised author and porn star Aiden Shaw, BBC interior designers Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan, Casualty actor Lee Warburton, Mr GAY UK 1999 Mark Ledsham and TV presenter Joanne Malin.

Rob was presented with the trophy by Mr GAY UK 2001 Carl Austin. He also goes home with prizes including a holiday to Gran Canaria, 1000 in cash, 500 worth of designer clothes, and a 500 gift pack courtesy of NOW Mail Order operators of the OutUK Shop.
