A STILL Game favourite and an entrepreneur dubbed a “scent maverick” are among those to be honoured by a city university.

Actor Gavin Mitchell, best known for his role as Boaby the barman in the hit BBC series, will receive a Doctor of Letters in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the television and media industry from Glasgow Caledonian University.

Jo Malone – who launched Jo Malone London in 1994 – will receive a Doctor of Science during GCU’s summer graduation ceremonies. It comes in recognition of her “outstanding contribution” to business creation in the UK and for her commitment to education.

In 1999, Jo sold the business to Estée Lauder Companies and remained Creative Director until she left in 2006.

GCU is awarding seven honorary degrees between July 2 and 4 in recognition of achievements and contributions across a range of backgrounds.

Entrepreneur Sir Tom Hunter and BBC Scotland director Donalda MacKinnon will be among the other recipients. They will join 5,000 students graduating from Glasgow School for Business and Society, the School of Computing, Engineering and Built Environment and the School of Health and Life Sciences, at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.
