STEPHANIE HIRST is set to receive an Honorary Doctorate from Leeds Beckett University.

The radio presenter will receive the honorary degree for her contribution to public life.

Stephanie said on social media: "I'm humbled, honoured, and a little overwhelmed to be awarded this accolade."

Leeds Beckett University Chancellor, Sir Bob Murray CBE, said: “Stephanie is an inspiration and demonstrates values we can all aspire to, such as integrity and authenticity. She has not only had a successful broadcasting career, but has very much become an icon for the transgender community after being so open and honest about her experiences.

“I am delighted that Leeds Beckett University is recognising Stephanie’s contribution to public life with this Honorary Doctorate. I believe her courage, experience and all that she has achieved will be of great inspiration to our graduating students.”
