Sir David Frost's memorial service drew a who's who of actors, politicians, TV presenters and royalty to Westminster Abbey.

There were readings by Sir Michael Parkinson, BBC director general Tony Hall, former BBC director general Greg Dyke and Ronnie Corbett.

Joanna Lumley read a humorous sonnet that she had written with Sir Richard Stilgoe, which started: "Shall I compare thee to Sir Robin Day? No more TV-am, no Al Jazeera, We end not a career, but end an era. For now he's gone, ascended into orbit, And 'I look up to him' (quoth Ronnie Corbett)."
