Try to bear in mind that that likes of Des O Connor, Paul O'Grady, Victoria Wood etc are being recognised for the charity work, and not their showbiz efforts. All three of them devote a lot of time to charity.

Des always looks as though he need a good sleep most of the time.

He hasn't been on our planet for several years, as far as I remember, so I'm struggling a bit to remember what charity work he's done recently.
