Arise...



...Sir Simon Russell Beale; Lee Child and Joanna Trollope CBE; Griff Rhys Jones, Elvis Costello, Bear Grylls, Bettany Hughes and Alfie Boe OBE; M.I.A., Andrew Roachford and Dan Snow MBE...

...and fellow Commander of the British Empire Olivia Colman, CBE!

We love Ms Colman - ever since she played the Mum "Debbie Doonan" in Beautiful People [see here, here and here] - and have followed her amazing rise from telly stalwart to Oscar-winner [for The Favourite, of course] with fascination.

But who knew she sang [after a fashion]?!


[Film: The Lobster (2015)]

Congratulations, Sarah Caroline Olivia Sinclair (née Colman), CBE!

HM The Queen's Birthday Honours List in full.

STOP PRESS: Trooping the Colour (HM The Queen's Official Birthday).

    1. What? Not even a humble BEM?

      My Damehood was lost in the post. Again!

  2. I was awarded a damehood last year but I turned it down on account of my youth, Damehoods are ever so aging.

    1. Try "Dowager", dear - one'd never get a part in Hollyoaks after that. Jx

  3. I was humming and hahing about watching The Lobster, but that little clip has cinched the deal - I will, thank you!

    P.S Do I have to curtsey now whenever Dame Olivia is on screen?
