Arise Sir Ken Dodd

ken-doddComedy legend Ken Dodd has been knighted for services to entertainment and charity, at the age of 89.

Ken Dodd, who is among the many included on the Queen’s New Year Honours list, told the BBC he was “very proud and highly tickled” to be knighted.

“I’m very proud and I’d like to thank all the people who wished it for me because they’re the ones that made it (happen), so thank you very much.”

Asked if the honour was overdue, he joked, “Oh no – my library books are, but this came as a complete surprise and it’s a wonderful feeling.”
