He said he was "truly stunned" to be made an MBE following his dedicated work with charities.

It comes after BBC Breakfast star Naga Munchetty made a BRUTAL swipe at Carol's outfit last week.

After her first appearance, Charlie Stayt, 59, joked that her first choice looked like a satellite dish.

But the swipes didn't stop there.

After Carol's final report Naga asked where her fourth hat was, but she confessed that she decided to stick with three because "less is more".

As the TV favourite proudly showed off the back of her hat, Naga, 47, brutally said: "Aw I always think the back of your head looks much better!"

A stunned Carol turned around and pulled front bit of her hat down to cover face.

She replied: "Ha! I know. I can do that for you as well, just get rid of my face!"

Naga was left in hysterics as the camera went back to the studio.
