The BBC on Honours, including CBE. Ben's agency says "Congratulations to our newest "Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire" (and no, I didn't know what CBE stood for either!).

Congrats, Ben! We're so proud of you. The BBC spoke to him last Saturday.
Horrible audio with the Telegraph interview; it also mentions that Steven Moffat received his OBE that same day. As did Eddie Redmayne. 8) Well done, gentlemen.
