The 86-year-old entertainer will receive the honour at the annual Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony in January.

He has already won a Tony, a Grammy and five Emmy awards.

Dick is being honoured for his 60-year career, which includes his hit TV show Diagnosis Murder and film credits such as Bye Bye Birdie and Mary Poppins, and his commitment to cahrities.

The 19th annual SAG Awards will be presented on January 27.
