Television host Chris Tarrant has been presented with an OBE by the Queen for services to broadcasting and charity.
Chris Tarrant joked with the Queen about his radio career
He accepted the honour at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday, saying he felt proud for his parents, his family and "just proud for myself".
The 57-year-old celebrity has raised millions for charity during his career.
He said the Queen asked him if he missed presenting his breakfast radio show, to which he replied he liked having a lie-in after 17 years.
"She thought that was quite funny," Tarrant said.
Tarrant handed over the show to Johnny Vaughan in April.
He was accompanied to the ceremony by his wife Ingrid, father Basil and his
eldest daughter Helen, 26.
His charity work includes being an ambassador for the homeless charity, Centrepoint, as well as patron of the Headway Thames Valley and Phoenix Centre for children with special needs.
When the Queen asked him which charity he was particularly proud of, he said Milly's Fund, set up in memory of murdered Surrey teenager Milly Dowler. He is patron of the charity.
Others receiving honours included Nicholas Parsons, presenter of Radio 4's Just A Minute.
The 75-year-old veteran actor and broadcaster said it was "delightful" to receive an OBE for services to drama and broadcasting.
"You work hard in your profession for many years and enjoy it and then suddenly they say we want to honour you for all your hard work," he said.
"What could be nicer? It is like getting a present for doing what you enjoy."
