Moments after coming off stage to a standing ovation Tony said it felt, "Odd, because I'm the guy who stands at the back and watches the others".
He went on to add, "It's absolutely great. I've been a 2020 member for a long time, I think they do a terrific job, for them to honour me was a little bit odd, because I'm not that young now.
