New Year Honours list: Your reaction
Ex-Eurythmics singer Annie Lennox is among stars recognised with a New Year Honour - appointed an OBE for work fighting Aids and poverty in Africa. What do you think of this year's Honours list?
Actors Sheila Hancock and David Suchet become CBEs, while stage star Harriet Walter has been appointed a dame.
Football's World Cup Final referee Howard Webb and US Open golf champion Graeme McDowell become MBEs.
MPs feature for the first time since the expenses scandal. Peter Bottomley is made a knight and Anne Begg a dame.
What is your reaction to the Honours list? Who are the stand-out names on the list, for you? Are there any surprise additions or omissions?
