Here at Mobiles.co.uk, we love a good photo opportunity. Regardless of how advanced your smartphone camera is however, there's often a lurker waiting to photobomb your perfect shot - sometimes by accident, and sometimes just for shenanigans.

Taking to Facebook, we decided to give away a free Google Pixel 3a handset to the best photobomb submitted in our recent comepetition which you can view here.

With so many hilarious entries to choose from, picking a single photo was a tough descision for our judges, but we eventially settled on a winner.

Scroll down to view the victiorious photobomber, as well as a selection of our other favourite submissions...

And the Winner is:

Tamara Jones
