Stephen Gately's Boyzone bandmates are due to fly back to Majorca today to bring the singer's body home for burial.

The 33-year-old was found dead at his holiday apartment on the Spanish island last Saturday.

A post mortem concluded that he died from natural causes.

The Gately family is understood to have a history of heart problems.

They are due to hold a private mass tomorrow night followed by a funeral service at St Lawrence O'Toole Church in Dublin's north inner city on Saturday afternoon.

A memorial service is also expected to be held in London, where Gately and his partner shared a home.
