The article goes on to quote Brian, who says, <i>"Iím delighted to have been recognised by my own city. As a boy who did not go to grammar school and had to leave at 15 to get a job without any further education, this is indeed a very great honour of which I will be very proud."</i>

Broadcaster Esther Rantzen and songwriter Richard Stilgoe will also receive Fellowships.

The graduation ceremonies will take place on July 21st and July 25th.
