The funeral of Minder star George Cole will be held on Thursday.

Cole, who died on Wednesday, aged 90, is best remembered for his portrayal of small-time wheeler dealer and crook Arthur Daley in the TV show Minder, alongside his likeable bodyguard Terry McCann, played by Dennis Waterman.

The show, which ran from 1979 to 1994, brought the criminal underworld of west London to millions of homes up and down the country.

Cole's funeral will be held at Reading Crematorium at 11.30am on Thursday, with Waterman giving the eulogy.

Cole died in hospital, his family at his side, after a short illness.
