BIG YIN GETS 'KNUTTED'

Post  Lamplighter on Sat Jun 17, 2017 9:18 am

'Hairy rebel' pleased to be Sir Billy Connolly

Scottish comedian Billy Connolly said he was "pleased and a little embarrassed" to get a knighthood in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.

The 74-year-old Glaswegian said he did not know much about what it would mean.

The star told BBC Scotland: "It won't really dawn on me until Glasgow people start calling me 'Sir Billy' or whatever they come up with."

He said it felt strange to be welcomed into the establishment as he still thought of himself as a "hairy rebel".

Can't say I am a big fan of his, LL, but he's in poor health now, so it's good that he's getting recognition while he is still with us.
