Dame Julie Walters: from TV comedy to award-winning stage and screen roles

The Queen's Birthday Honours list has been published - and it only includes three names from the world of United Kingdom tech.

Tourists Allen Pemborke and Paul Short are also both receiving the Queen's Commendation for Bravery after they helped the wounded who were shot on a beach in Tunisia in 2015.

His global boss O'Neill earned an MBE in the New Year Honours for services to football and to the community in Northern Ireland, and Davis admitted he was shocked to have been recognised too.

Sue Lister, who runs York-based women's theatre company Real People has been awarded an MBE, as has Open Clasp Theatre's Catrina McHugh, who has also been recognised for her work with women through theatre.

Chart-topping singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has been recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.

"I love nursing leadership, the honour is not about me it's about nursing, it's one for west Wales nurses, they work incredibly hard and it's the most marvellous profession", said Mrs Oakley.

Judy Murray is awarded an OBE for services to tennis, women's sport and charity.

And Carmel Grant, from Wiltshire, received an OBE for services to Army reform.

If you wish to make a change on your card more than a year before your renewal date, you must pay a replacement fee. Shupe, an OR resident, is an Army veteran who was designated male at birth (DMAB) but began to transition in 2013.

She said she and the Met staff are "immensely proud" of the officer and added: "He paid the ultimate price for his selfless actions".

Last year's gold medal (at the Worlds in Alicante) wasn't quite so unexpected because I had won gold medals before, although it was an honour.

Also honoured is Anne Campbell Bradley, from Henley-in-Arden, who is made MBE for charitable services in Warwickshire. Comedian Billy Connolly has been given a knighthood and actress Julie Walters becomes a dame (about time too).

"She is a very lovely lady who has lived in Andover for many years".

Ed receives his for services to music and charity.

The award comes at a poignant time for Pam, whose husband Roy died recently after battling Parkinson's Disease for eight years.

Double Olympic champion and Army Major Heather Stanning gets an OBE for services to rowing, and former world champion John Conteh is honoured with an MBE for services to boxing.
