Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds may have a joint funeral, it has been revealed.

The two actresses sadly died within a day of each other earlier in the week, and now their surviving family members have expressed their wish for a joint ceremony.

Todd Fisher, brother of Carrie and son of Debbie, told the New York Daily News that the family were still ironing out the details but it may happen, if possible. “It’s what we want to do, but we’re still working on the mechanics,” he said. “We like the idea, if it’s at all possible. I think it’s appropriate.”

He also tweeted a touching drawing, depicting Reynolds in 'Singing in the Rain' and Fisher in her iconic Princess Leia costume, calling their relationship a 'beautiful love story'.
