Harris will lose his CBE that he was awarded by the Queen in 2006, as well as the Bafta Fellowship he received two years ago.

"The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has made the decision to annul the BAFTA Fellowship bestowed upon Rolf Harris in 2012 following his conviction," a spokesman confirmed.

The final decision to revoke an honour from Buckingham Palace must be made by the Queen - who first awarded the presenter an MBE in the late 1960s, followed by an OBE before a CBE.
