The 2021 New Year Honours list has been revealed and a number of names have been recognised.

Among those receiving an MBE is the Southampton-born legend Craig David who has been named in the list for his services to music.

Formula One star Lewis Hamilton has also been knighted in the 2021 New Years Honours list, making him a “Sir”, which is the highest possible honour from the Queen.

The list also names hundreds of Covid-19 volunteers for their work during the pandemic, with 65% of honourees being individuals such as not-for-profit founders, retired NHS staff who returned to work and many more.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson described the 2021 New Year’s Honours list as a “welcome reminder of the strength of human spirit, and of what can be achieved through courage and compassion.”
