Waterman Awarded Obe From Queen

Music producer PETER WATERMAN has been made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in QUEEN ELIZABETH II's annual honours list.

The pop svengali, 57, has received the accolade for his illustrious music career, during which he's penned a myriad of number one hit singles for singers like KYLIE MINOGUE, RICK ASTLEY and JASON DONOVAN.

In recent years, Waterman has enjoyed renewed fame as a judge on British TV talent show POP STARS: THE RIVALS.

But the self-assured hitmaker - who claims everything he touches "turns to gold" in his autobiography I WISH I WAS ME - is best known for a stream of chart-topping 80s tunes like I SHOULD BE SO LUCKY and TOO MANY BROKEN HEARTS.
