Johannesburg - The nominees for this year’s YOU Spectacular have been announced and readers can now vote for their favourite celebrities in the various categories – from Favourite TV Presenter and Sexiest Woman to Most Stylish Man and Favourite Sports Star. 

“The YOU Spectacular is an opportunity for us to celebrate our favourite stars,” says Charlene Rolls, editor of YOU. “These are the celebrities who’ve entertained and inspired us over the past year. And of course who better to choose the winners than our readers?”

Some stars have even cracked the nod more than once – Bonang Matheba, Jonathan Boynton-Lee, Katlego Maboe, Janez Vermeiren, Minnie Dlamini and AKA have all been nominated in more than one category. 

This year we’ve added an exciting new category to the mix – Favourite Comedian recognises the comics who not only make us laugh but give us a new perspective with their insightful and hilarious observations on life in SA.
