New Year Honours list: Michael Eavis, Emilia Clarke, Paul Hollywood and Mary Earps among big names included | UK News

World Cup hero Mary Earps and Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke are among the big names on the latest New Year Honours list.

Earps, who earlier this month bagged the Sports’ Personality Of The Year trophy, becomes an MBE for services to football after playing in goal for England’s World Cup campaign, where they finished runners-up.

Her colleagues Millie Bright and Lauren Hemp also get honours – an OBE and MBE respectively.

Emilia Clarke, alongside her mother, gets an MBE after they set up charity SameYou, which works to help people recover from brain injuries after the actress survived two brain haemorrhages.

Paul Hollywood also earns an MBE for his work in baking and broadcasting.

Michael Eavis, the founder of Glastonbury Festival, will be knighted for services to charity and music. He is listed under his full name, Athelstan Joseph Michael Eavis.

In an interview for the official Glastonbury website, Eavis said: “I think William might do the ceremony.

“He’s made a few mentions of wanting to come to the festival.

“So I’ll probably take a couple of tickets in my pocket!”

Elsewhere, Wetherspoon founder Tim Martin will be knighted while cricketer Stuart Broad gets a CBE following his retirement. X-Factor winner Leona Lewis becomes an OBE while author Kate Mosse will be given an CBE.

“It had never been expected, so it came out the blue,” Mr Martin told the PA news agency.

“I always think that, in the pub world, it is a team effort – even if you’ve just got one pub there are many people involved.

“I think it’s the Wetherspoon colleagues and customers who are getting the award really, that’s the way I look at it. I’m just the lucky recipient.”
