COMEDIAN Catherine Tate was bovvered enough to accept a special award from her old school when she was awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the Central School of Speech and Drama.
Her TV creations have proved a big hit and her character Lauren's catchphrase 'bovvered' was recently named by language experts as the word of the year.
Ms Tate graduated from the Swiss Cottage drama school in 1993, following in the footsteps of alumni including Laurence Olivier, Vanessa Redgrave and Judi Dench. But it took her three attempts to get in, as was revealed by actress Anne Reid who presented her with the degree at the Theatre Royal in Drury Lane on Tuesday.
"Catherine Tate is well on her way to becoming a national treasure," said Ms Reid.
