Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage, who successfully argued for Britain's departure from the EU, had also been shortlisted.

Farage has enjoyed a momentous year as one of the driving forces behind the UK's vote for Brexit before becoming a prominent supporter of Donald Trump on his journey to the White House.

Trump himself was on the list, as well as Russian President Vladimir Putin and singer Beyonce.
