George Michael's body has still not been release, a month after his death
The Wham! frontman was found dead by his partner Fadi Fawaz in his Oxfordshire home on Christmas Day.
But Oxfordshire coroner, Darren Salter, is still unable to begin an official inquest into his death because Thames Valley Police have not yet received results of George’s toxicology tests.
On December 30, an initial post-mortem of the 53-year-old star proved to be “inconclusive”.
A funeral for the pop star cannot take place until his body is released by the coroner following the opening of the inquest.

It is not known whether his funeral will take place in Goring-on-Thames beside his riverside house or in London where he also had a home in Highgate.
A source close to George’s family were recently said to be worried that they won’t be able to lay the pop singer to rest in a traditional Greek Orthodox service.
The insider also said the length of time it has taken for his body to be released is making the “grief so much worse” after they were warned it could take up until February.
Amid speculation surrounding George’s death, his cousin claimed the star died after an “accidental drugs overdose”.

On The Victoria Derbyshire Show, Andros Georgiou denied the pop icon’s death was suicide as he believed George was back to "hard drugs".
He said: ”He was dragged back into the dark side…
"Hard drugs had been back in his life. I just think he took too much of something, mixed with antidepressants and other drugs he was on – with alcohol."
Tourists and fans are still paying tribute to the Wake Me Up Before You Go Go singer and are continuing to leave flowers outside his home where he was found on Christmas Day.
