Fuller, who has also managed figures including David Beckham, Andy Murray and Lewis Hamilton, will gain a Doctor of Letters from the University of Brighton.

He has built up a £382 million fortune from a career which has seen him build up the Pop Idol franchise, according to the latest Sunday Times Rich List.

Hastings-born Fuller, whose grandfather was a headmaster in the East Sussex seaside town, will receive his doctorate on July 31 at the summer graduation awards at the Brighton Dome.

A spokesman for the university said the honour was in recognition of his "major contribution to business, entrepreneurship and philanthropy".
