Davy Jones will be buried in Florida, a representative of the singer has confirmed.

The Monkees star - who was born in Manchester, North West England - will be laid to rest in the state, where he lived with his wife Jessica Pacheo, following his death from a heart attack aged 66 earlier this week.

No further details of the funeral have been announced, while public memorials are being planned in New York and the UK to mark the singer's life, but exact dates are yet to have been confirmed, TMZ.com reports.

Davy - who leaves behind four daughters, Talia Elizabeth, 43, and Sarah Lee, 40 from his marriage to Linda Haines, and Jessica Lillian, 30, and 23-year-old Annabel Charlotte from his marriage to Anita Pollinger - is said to have died from a ''massive heart attack'' at the stables of his Florida home.

His representative released a statement obtained by the website, which read: ''Jones died after spending a happy family weekend with his wife, Jessica Pacheco, and her family riding horses.

''There was no sign of illness or of anything being wrong. He died of a massive heart attack while back at the stables with his horses. The medical examiner has confirmed his cause of death.''

A number of stars have paid tribute to Davy - who had a lifelong passion for horses, and trained to be a jockey as a youngster - following his passing including his Monkees bandmates Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork.
