The salacious summary

Hold your horses, chums, you'll have to wait a little longer for the BIG TAB TOP 10. Meanwhile, you can content yourselves with this tidy selection of slightly smaller names on campus.

In a list dominated by thesps, social justice warriors and sports stars The Tab has gathered together the biggest names of 2018. Here you can find who they are and the saucy details that got them on to this infamous list.

Former BNOCs abound

Whether you see them at the Cindies bar asking for "the usual" (4 tropical VKs of course) or whether their face is plastered all over town promoting their latest thespianic shenanigans or indeed if they're one of that rare breed of super nice, wholesome people who really deserves to be well known. Their name will be on this list. And if it's not, you must question whether they're really relevant at all?

Despite some hilarious submissions for a "turtleneck-wearing woke intellectual", "the freshest fresher of all time" and a girl who "describes herself as a BNOT, always swipes right on Tinder" we didn't quite reach the heights of 2016 where a bona fide campaign was launched by Thomas Hughes-McLure of Trinity. Accompanied with steamy gifs and plenty of bare skin the Tab editorial team were dismayed that the Best Bums spirit didn't reach to BNOC. Facebook link attached here:


Feeling so #Blessed and #Loved to have been shortlisted for tab BNOC. What an honor. With all my love, THM.xoxoxo#VoteTHM here ever thanking Harriet Gordon for the encouragement.
