Gurinder Chadha OBE

Posted in Other News on June, 17 2006 9:37 AM

The Queen's birthday Honours list has been announced, so here's another round up of who can be slapping themselves on the back today.

Firstly, many congratulations to Gurinder Chadha, director of the wonderful British comedy Bend It Like Beckham and Bhaji On The Beach. She gets an OBE.

All-round entertainer and author of the comedy songs Jake The Peg and The Court of King Caractacus Rolf Harris, please step forward. You are now a CBE.

Harris is actually celebrating a hat-trick, to use a football phrase as he already has an OBE and an MBE. He said "It's just wonderful, it's a lovely feeling. I'm still very much an Australian, but I've lived here for more than half my life now and it's my adopted home."

Peter Lord and David Sproxton, for services to animation (and cheese), you are now also both CBE's. Lord and Sproxton are the co-founders of Aardman Animations, home of Wallace and Gromit and Creature Comforts, not to mention the old favourite Morph. They were said to be "amazed and humbled" to have received the awards.
