ormer Crimewatch presenter Nick Ross, who hosted the show for more than two decades, is to collect a CBE at a ceremony at Windsor Castle on Wednesday.

The broadcaster, 73, will receive the award for services to broadcasting, charity and crime prevention.

It comes as the Queen, who is experiencing mild cold-like symptoms after catching coronavirus, is self-isolating at the Berkshire residence.

Ross, whose screen credits also include Sixty Minutes, Watchdog and Breakfast Time, previously said the honour was dedicated to his late colleague, Jill Dando.

Broadcasting is an honour in itself. It is a fantastic career to have. The charity initiatives flow directly out of that

After his co-presenter, Dando, was killed in 1999, he started a campaign to commemorate her leading to the creation of the Jill Dando Institute of Crime Science at University College London, which has developed a multi-disciplinary approach to crime prevention.

Ross also described himself as “delighted” to have been recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in 2021 and said his 50-year career had “all been a bit of a privilege”.

Speaking to the PA news agency, he said previously: “Obviously, I am delighted. The citation is really for three different things: broadcasting, charity work and for crime prevention; but, the truth is, it has all been a bit of a privilege really.

“Broadcasting is an honour in itself. It is a fantastic career to have. The charity initiatives flow directly out of that.”

“The death of my co-presenter, Jill Dando, led to the idea of the Jill Dando Institute of Crime Science in honour of her, which is at University College London, one of the best universities in the world, and it is now being copied around the world and, actually, this is its 20th anniversary, so in some ways this is an honour for them too,” he added.

Ross has been chairman, president, trustee or patron of a large number of charities including the heritage-focused Kensington Society and Prisoners Abroad.
