The New Year's Honours List for 2018 has been revealed, and there are a few famous faces in there.

Bee Gees legend Barry Gibb will become a Sir, as will Beatles drummer Ringo Starr.

Barry, who is recognised for his services to music and charity, dedicated the honour to his late brothers, saying: "The magic, the glow, and the rush will last me the rest of my life."

"I want to acknowledge how responsible my brothers are for this honour. It is as much theirs as it is mine."

Ringo's award comes 52 years after he received an MBE as part of the Beatles, and 20 years after fellow bandmate Sir Paul McCartney was honoured.

Soft Cell singer Marc Almond receives an OBE for services to arts and culture. He said: "I can't really be a rebel any more. I think it's time to leave it to younger people."
