At 74-years-old, Billy Connolly is to become a Sir, after his name was released as part of the Queen's Birthday Honors List.

Hailing from Glasgow in Scotland, the comedian first shot to fame in the mid-1960s, before going on to appear in a series of movies such as 'Muppet Treasure Island' in 1996 and more recently, 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' in 2014.

Though it's come as great news to the star, he admits he was shocked when he realized he was to become a part of the establishment, of which he says "isn't a place I relish".
