amian Lewis is expected to be given a gong in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list, according to reports.

This week the actor – who has been grieving the death of his wife Helen McCrory – will reportedly be awarded with a CBE.

The honour is said to recognise all the good work and time the 51-year-old has devoted to quietly carrying out charity work over the years.

Now a friend told The Sun: “This is richly deserved for all the work Damian has done for so many people with so much done with little or no public fanfare.”

In 2014, the Homeland star was given an OBE for his services to drama and received the award from The Duke of Cambridge Prince William at Buckingham Palace.

Last year, Lewis said he was “proud” he and his wife Mrs McCrory had helped raise more than £1.5 million to feed NHS staff during the Covid pandemic.

In a Out to Lunch podcast before his wife’s death, he said: “We raised over one and a half million pounds and by the end of it were feeding 40,000 meals a day to a hundred different hospitals across the UK.

“It had started just with a conversation with a pal and he said “look we’re good at looking after patients but we are crap at looking after our own staff, can you think of anyway we can feed them?

“I am very, very glad we did it and I am full of admiration for people who give their time working in the charity sector.”

A year on from his wife’s death, he recently joined a number of stars – including Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter and Keeley Hawes – to remember her in a memorial service.

The Standard has reached out to Damian Lewis’ representatives for further comment.
