On the BBC Radio 4 show I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, one of the rounds requires the teams to give examples of new members of the nobility they may have spotted from the Honours list. Here are some of the teams' suggestions, along with some of my suggestions. If you have any ideas you would like included, please e-mail me here, and I will add the best ones (with full credit to you of course)
