Harewood was presented with a replica star by the Mayor of Birmingham, Mike Leddy, and revealed he was delighted with the honour, saying, "I'm completely chuffed (delighted) - it's a very special day. I'm absolutely bowled over by the attention... I can't get my head around it. It's a little bit overwhelming... "It's good to be home in the place where I spent my formative years. I've got some very good friends here, and it will always be home. The way my job works I don't really get a lot of downtime, but my Mum, Dad and other family are still here."
