Who are your heroes and villains of 2015?

More than 2,000 people across the country have voted for their heroes and villains of the year.

And it is astronaut Tim Peake, currently aboard the International Space Station, who captured the public’s hearts and took the number one spot for the biggest hero.

Oscar Pistorius took the crown for the biggest villain for the third year in a row, after taking 38% of the vote. A quarter of the nation picked their Prime Minister as the third-highest villain, in joint place with Vladimir Putin and Katie Hopkins.
