NCIS star Mark Harmon was proud and humbled as he received his star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

The 61-year-old actor thanked fans and his co-stars as he accepted the honour, which coincides with the tenth anniversary of the hit CBS crime show.

Mark joked in his speech: "When I first arrived here this morning there was a guy asleep on Howard Hawks and there was a guy asleep on Tom Mix. So it did come to my mind that perhaps in future years this might be an appropriate place for me to lay my sleeping bag!"

The Chicago Hope star was introduced by President and CEO of CBS Corporation, Leslie Moonves.

Mark said he was honoured to receive the star, but felt he shared it with the rest of the team on NCIS and everyone else he had worked with over the years.

He said: "I'm really fortunate to get up every morning and go do a job I love going to. I like being an actor.

"This is a long way from where I started. If this means anything to me it represents longevity, but when I look at that I see many more names than my own. And that's the way I feel about this honour, that's the way I feel about this business, it's pretty much the way I feel about life."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
