Game of Thrones actor James Cosmo has received an MBE for services to drama.

The 70-year-old Braveheart and Highlander star, from West Dunbartonshire, said: “I suppose it’s like a footnote to my career.

“I’ve been in the business for 53 years now and it’s wonderful to be recognised — all for being an actor, that’s all. It’s a lovely feeling.”

TV presenter Ross King was also awarded an MBE for services to broadcasting, the arts and charity.

The LA correspondent for ITV breakfast programmes Lorraine and Good Morning Britain said he been given congratulations from a raft of stars over the honour.

The big names include Catherine Zeta-Jones, Michael Douglas, Gerard Butler, Lulu, Jane Seymour, Gary Barlow and Dame Joan Collins.
