A non descript man from the Manchester slum area of Weatherfield has received a knighthood but claims he has no idea why while former Take That singer, all round good egg, super slimmer and super Royalist Gary Barlow snubbed!
It appears though that Her Majesty became confused and like we all do, got some names jumbled up it has left palace officials red faced, one senior aide saying "It is a right royal fuck up!"
Meanwhile, former teacher, reporter and ten times married Ken Barlow, of 23 Coronation Street, Weatherfield, now Sir Ken Barlow, has accepted his knighthood, believing it was down to the fact at the age of 75, he still spouts what some are calling a "grand head of hair!"
Meanwhile poor Gary Barlow, who did all he could to become Sir Gary, even sacrificing his two week annual jaunt to Butlins in Bognor to put on a show for the Queen is devastated.
It is being reported he has taken to his bedroom at his mum's house in Chester and locked himself in, with a crate of Coca Cola, a box of Walker's Salt and Vinegar, 25 yorkies (chocolate bars not dogs), a year supply of Angel Delight and a young Spanish waiter named Diego.
Reports that American "funny man" Robin Williams is to recieve the OBE are yet to be confirmed.
