Yesterday saw Paul’s funeral take place in Aldington, Kent.

Fans of the late comedian lined the village streets as the funeral procession passed through.

Paul’s husband Andre Portasio looked devastated as he rode on the horse-drawn carriage carrying Paul’s coffin. One of the couple’s dogs – Conchita – sat on his lap. A wreath depicting Paul’s beloved dog Buster dressed the star’s coffin.

A number of celebrities were in attendance too, including Alan Carr and Ronnie Wood.

Paul is believed to have been buried next to his former partner and “best mate”, Brendan Murphy.

Mishap at the funeral!

Not everything at Paul’s funeral went to plan though.

According to the vicar, there was a slight mishap with the church organ during the service.

Speaking about the service, The Reverend Canon Roger Martin said it was a “fitting send-off”, reports The Express.

“The mood was very jolly. There were some recordings of Paul, favourite clips, a good selection of varied music, it was light-hearted. It was a moving occasion. It was a very fitting send-off,” he said.

“However, during one hymn, the church organ, which has to be pumped by hand, malfunctioned.

“We tried it before the service started, you have to pump and keep it up at a certain level and something has gone wrong right at the wrong moment. We were able to turn it into a moment of fun,” he said.
