Fans of Ronnie Corbett will have a chance to bid farewell to him in London this June at Westminster Abbey.
The BBC is working closely with Corbett's family, friends and the Abbey to create "a very special commemorative service".
A Service Of Thanksgiving For The Life And Work of Ronnie Corbett CBE has been arranged for Wednesday 7th June 2017 at 12 noon.
The BBC says: "There will be readings and tributes from the likes of Jimmy Tarbuck, Rob Brydon, Joanna Lumley and Sir Michael Parkinson, together with stirring music from the BBC Concert Orchestra and of course the Abbey choir and organ."
Summarising the comedian's entertainment career, the Westminster Abbey website explains: "Ronnie Corbett was born in Edinburgh and had a 60-year career as an actor and entertainer. He appeared most notably in The Frost Report (1966-67) and The Two Ronnies (1971-87) with Ronnie Barker, regularly drawing audiences of up to 22 million. He also had a successful solo career, including the BBC sitcom Sorry! and regular appearances in film and theatre. He died in March last year at the age of 85."
Fans wishing to attend the service can apply for two free tickets via the Westminster Abbey website
