The number one spot was taken by Lynne Newton, with her joke: "What will be missing from Take That's Christmas stocking this year? An Orange."
She won a prize of £1,500 towards a holiday and a box of Gold crackers, one of which will contain her own joke.
Lynne said: "I am so delighted to have my joke chosen as the winner and can't wait to see it in a Christmas cracker this year — I tried to think of a joke for which all age groups would enjoy the punch line, I hope it gets a great reaction from all who see it!"
Comedy critic Bruce Dessausaid: "This year's top ten confirmed what I always suspected - that there are comedians everywhere.
"The entrants came up with quips that were cheeky, smart and snappy, the perfect combination for the perfect Christmas cracker joke."
