Sir Bruce: I hope I'm worthy

Entertainer Bruce Forsyth says he is "very proud" after being knighted in the Queen's Birthday Honours.

The recognition for the 83-year-old comes after years of campaigning by fans and a parliamentary Early Day Motion signed by 73 MPs.

The list also sees actor Colin Firth and singer Bryan Ferry become CBEs, and BBC Radio 4 presenter Jenni Murray a dame. But celebrities make up only a small number of those being recognised for their efforts - as Lizo Mzimba reports.
