Sir Mick Jagger has signed a petition along with Johnny Vegas and other celebrities to get Ken Dodd knighted.
Bob Pitt, who is behind the petition, told the paper: “It’s been a massive success, with 2,500-odd signatures so far. It was such a good sight seeing the signature of Sir Mick Jagger on the website.”
A spokesperson for comedian Dodd said he thought the campaign “is very nice”.
