A private funeral service for late magician Paul Daniels took place today with scores of friends and relatives arriving to pay their respects to the iconic British entertainer.

Shortly after 12:15pm this afternoon, a hearse pulled up outside the Milton Chapel at Chilterns Crematorium in rural Buckinghamshire.

His wife Debbie McGee, cloaked in black, exited a black limousine as the funeral procession made its way into the chapel.

Among the crowds were Mr Daniels' nephews and his three sons Paul, Gary and Martin.

Some familiar faces blessed the Amersham-based crematorium with their presence including comedian Barry Cryer, television presenter Gloria Hunniford - dressed in a striking blue blazer - actress Bonnie Langford and lyricist Don Black whose work has appeared in classic films such as True Grit and The Italian Job.

As the mourners prepared to take their seats, the ivory-white coffin marked with two joker playing cards was carried into the chapel.

The casket was adorned with a beautiful bed of red roses which carried a photograph of Debbie Mcgee on top, with a tribute message reading: "Love you always, Debbie xxx."

At the front of the coffin a silver wand was placed on top of a blue suede pillow in tribute to Mr Daniels' much celebrated profession.
