Eamonn Holmes asked Queen Elizabeth for an interview as he picked up an OBE for services to broadcasting.

The TV host said he was "just trying to get the big names" when he told the queen he had spoken to almost every member of her family except her.

Speaking at Buckingham Palace after collecting his honour, the Belfast-born broadcaster said his request was laughed off.

"I told her that I have interviewed almost every member of her family except her. I said, 'so you have got to put that right for me'," he said after the event.

"She laughed - I think that meant no."
