Disgraced broadcaster Stuart Hall has been stripped of his OBE in the wake of his conviction for sex offences against children.
A notice was put in the London Gazette this afternoon confirming that the Queen had directed that the honour should be “cancelled and anulled”.
Former It’s A Knockout presenter Hall was made an OBE in 2012 for services to broadcasting and charity.
The 83-year-old is currently serving a 30-month jail term for sexually abusing 13 victims, one as young as nine, over a period of nearly 20 years.
He was initially given a 15-month prison term, but the Court of Appeal ruled that the sentence was “inadequate” and it was doubled in July.
