The BBC's Sports Personality Of The Year awards were televised on December 16th, 2012, with special guest presenter the Duchess of Cambridge in her first public appearance since the announcement of her pregnancy and being hospitalized with severe morning sickness two weeks ago.
Three of the UK's most beautiful people - Middleton, Ennis and Beckham shared the stage in London, but it wasn't them being together on one platform that grabbed headlines. Instead the drama of a pregnant Kate's appearance reached its peak, when SPOTY runner-up and London Olympic heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis didn't return Middleton's offered handshake onstage.
From the video of Ennis' Kate Middleton diss, it does appear Ennis simply could not see Kate extending her hand.
Twitter quickly erupted over Ennis's scandalous spurning. Let’s quickly check out what people have to say about it.
