Byline: ALUN PALMER

But that august publication decided made photobomb its word of the year.

CELEBS

STEVEN SPIELBERG

It's a close encounter of the third celeb as the film director Bombs the Boss, larking about behind Bruce Springsteen and wife Patti Scialfa.

JARED LETO

If you've just won an Oscar you're allowed to photobomb anyone. Jared was still celebrating as the oblivious Anne Hathaway walked by.

JENNIFER LAWRENCE

The Hunger Games star crept up behind Taylor Swift at the Golden Globe awards. "I was going to push you down the stairs," she joked.

DANNY BAKER

Who's that bloke in front of Danny? The radio star couldn't resist a comedy face behind Leonardo DiCaprio at the BAFTA Awards.

EMMA THOMPSON

We think this bizarre face means Emma thought Lupita Nyong'o was, like, jaw-droppingly awesome in 12 Years A Slave.

LUPITA NYONG'O

Now it's all going round in circles as Lupita sneaks up behind fellow Oscar-winner Jared Leto.

BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH

The Sherlock star found it elementary to muscle in on U2's Oscars shot. They weren't too bothered - with or without him.

SPORT

USAIN BOLT

Who's going to stop the world's fastest man bombing straight in? His willing victims at the Common wealth Games were England's silver medallists in the 4x100m.

LEE WESTWOOD

Hard to upstage the European Ryder Cup team's hideous blazers but Lee managed it by gurning behind team-mate Ian Poulter and wife Katie at Gleneagles.

LEWIS HAMILTON

They may be Mercedes team-mates but Formula 1 drivers Lewis andNico Rosberg are also fierce rivals. Even when posing with fans...

ANIMALS

BELUGA WHALE

Irked that a rival whale was getting a lot of attention, Snowball forced herself into this shot at a Ukraine dolphinarium. More of a pout than a spout...

CAT

"So Taylor Swift, you and your pal Sarah think you can take a selfie without me, Meredith, your rare-breed Scottish Fold Cat worth at least $1,000? Think again!"

PARROTFISH

Looking more like Finding Nemo than real life, this cheekily grinning parrotfish seems to know EXACTLY what he's doing crashing into snorkeler Sophia Roth's photo off Key West, Florida.

PRINCE WILLIAM

"Got to love a Royal photobomb!" said cycling champ Sir Chris Hoy as he tweeted this snap of the playful prince grinning like a loon over his shoulder, also during the Commonwealth Games in June.

PRINCE HARRY

Making it a hat-trick of Royal invasions at the same event, Harry was watching the swimming in Glasgow when when he gave the camera a double thumbs-up behind three sporting bigwigs from New Zealand.

THE QUEEN

The best photobomb ever. At the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow she got herself into Aussie hockey player Jayde Taylor's selfie with teammate Brooke Peris.
