Stephen Fry - Stephen Fry And Michael Parkinson Among Mourners At David Frost's Funeral

Comedians Stephen Fry and Ronnie Corbett and revered British talk show host Sir Michael Parkinson were among the mourners who turned out on Wednesday (11Sep13) to attend the funeral of legendary broadcaster Sir David Frost.

The iconic newsman, who was portrayed by Michael Sheen in Oscar-nominated movie Frost/Nixon, passed away on 31 August (13), after suffering a heart attack on a cruise ship, and stars including Sir Paul MCCartney, Yoko Ono, Russell Crowe and Joan Collins were some of the first to offer tributes following his death.

On Wednesday, friends and family members gathered at the Holy Trinity Church in Oxfordshire, England to bid a final farewell to the famed interviewer, and his close friend Fry later took to his Twitter.com blog to share his grief with fans.

He wrote, "David Frost's funeral - so sad. He was a wonderful father, husband and friend. The only people who didn't like him hadn't met him."

A public memorial service is expected to be held in the U.K. at a later date.
