Queen's Birthday Honours List.

Scottish comedian Billy Connolly said he was "pleased and a little embarrassed" to get a knighthood.

Also good to see June Whitfield honoured. She's been a giant in radio/tv/film for well over half a century. Who can forget Ron and Eff from the Glums.

Yes, it was Eth, although I thought it was Eff for ages. The wonderful era of radio long before we had a telivision. I think June Whitfield replaced another actress who played Eth.
