Asterisk (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

star

'asterisk' is the definition.
(I know that asterisk can be written as star)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for star that I've seen before include "Sign of a leading performer" , "eg The sun" , "Luminary" , "Symbol of excellence" , "Celebrity in the world of entertainment" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian, the Evening Standard, The Mirror, the King Feature Syndicate and The Telegraph.
