Celebrity friends and fans of Terry Wogan arrived en masse at London’s Westminster Abbey today for the Service of Thanksgiving in honour of the late star.
The likes of Fearne Cotton, Dermot O’Leary, Barry Cryer, Ken Bruce and June Whitfield were among the familiar faces at the memorial.
Terry, known for his velvety voice on radio and television, died at the age of 77 on January 31 this year following a battle with cancer.
The Limerick native's career spanned more than four decades, and he was known for his long-running BBC Radio 2 breakfast show, his chat shows, Children In Need and his often blistering commentary on the Eurovision Song Contest.
The service also includes performances from singer Katie Melua and Peter Gabriel, and a reading from actress Joanna Lumley.
Today’s Service of Thanksgiving For the Life and Work of Terry Wogan will be conducted by the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall, who will praise the broadcaster “was a legend in his own lifetime.”
There will be a collection for BBC Children In Need during the service.
