First launched five years ago, the competition was created by TV channel Gold "to brighten up the festive season" after it was revealed that nearly three quarters of Brits thought that traditional cracker jokes were in need of a makeover.
Comedians and the public were challenged to post their original festive gags on Twitter for the competition, with a judging panel then picking which should go forward to an anonymous public vote to decide on the winners.
The author of the winning joke, Samuel Williams, received £1,500 towards a holiday and a box of bespoke Gold Christmas Crackers, one of which will contain his own gag.
Comedy critic Bruce Dessau, who headed up the Gold judging panel, says: "In a world that seems to have turned upside down in recent years, there is something wonderfully reassuring about the fact that people have still retained their sense of humour and come up with some inspired gags for this year's Gold Christmas Crackers competition. The subjects of the jokes that were entered reflect the issues that concern the country today; from Brexit and Donald Trump to Bruce Forsyth and Southern Rail, people have still been able to find the funny side."
Gerald Casey, channel director of Christmas Gold at UKTV, says: "The festive period brings about a lot of time for reflection on the year that's gone by and with so many tumultuous events happening around the world in 2017, it's good to see that the famous British wit is still sharp as ever."
