As December draws on, it's often a time to look back and remember the year just gone, and many of the famous faces who sadly left us. Last year the world of celebrity mourned the deaths of many public figures, including Keith Chegwin and Sir Bruce Forsyth. And 2018 has also seen some big losses, with famous faces from the worlds of sport, television and film all passing on. We've mourned the creative genius behind the Marvel universe, a former US President and his First Lady, and the men behind some of British TV's best-loved children's shows. The death of a young BBC presenter touched the nation, while the sporting world remembered a pioneering black footballer, and one of the greatest darts players to ever take to the oche.

A PARADE of pink Cadillacs will line up outside the church where Aretha Franklin's funeral will be held in homage to her hit song 'Freeway of Love.' More than 130 of the luxury motors will park up outside Greater Grace Temple on Friday in tribute to the tune which is an anthem for Detroit, known as Motor City.

"My husband said, 'Wouldn't it be awesome if we could have a sea of pink Cadillacs parked on Seven Mile Road to greet Ms. Aretha Franklin as she arrives?' Ellis, who herslef owns a luxurious pink Escalade, explained to NPR. She then began searching for other pink 'Caddy' owners who would be up for joining in the amazing farewell procession.
