Comedian Stewart Francis has won an award for the funniest joke of the Edinburgh Fringe.

The deadpan Canadian funnyman was given the prize by digital TV channel Dave, whose panel put a selection of their favourites to a public vote.

He won for the joke: "You know who really gives kids a bad name? Posh and Becks."

The British King of the one-liner, Tim Vine, took the runner-up spot for the second year in a row.

Vine, who won the award two years ago, appears twice in the list of 10 jokes compiled by the TV channel, as does Francis.

The top jokes were:

  • 1. Stewart Francis - "You know who really gives kids a bad name? Posh and Becks."

  • 2. Tim Vine - "Last night me and my girlfriend watched three DVDs back to back. Luckily I was the one facing the telly. "

  • 3. Will Marsh - "I was raised as an only child, which really annoyed my sister."

  • 4. Rob Beckett - "You know you're working class when your TV is bigger than your book case."

  • 5. Chris Turner - "I'm good friends with 25 letters of the alphabet… I don't know Y."

  • 6. Tim Vine - "I took part in the sun tanning Olympics - I just got Bronze."

  • 7. George Ryegold - "Pornography is often frowned upon, but that's only because I'm concentrating."

  • 8. Stewart Francis - "I saw a documentary on how ships are kept together. Riveting!"

  • 9. Lou Sanders - "I waited an hour for my starter so I complained: 'It's not rocket salad."

  • 10. Nish Kumar - "My mum's so pessimistic, that if there was an Olympics for pessimism… she wouldn't fancy her chances."
