The funeral director, who helped prepare Marilyn Monroe's body for burial after she died aged just 36 in 1962 following a suspected overdose, has spoken out for the first time, revealing the star's final hours.

Allan Abbott, who ran one of the most popular funeral services in the 1960s for celebrities along with Ron Hast, has written a tell-all book about his work for the stars and claims Monroe was almost unrecognisable when he saw her body shortly after she had died, the Mirror reported.

Abbott said that when they removed the sheet covering Monroe, it was almost impossible to believe that that was her body, as she looked like a very average, aging woman, who had not been taking very good care of herself.
