The service at Roselawn cemetery for the BBC Radio Ulster star will be open to the public.

The sudden death of the 47-year-old was announced by the corporation on Tuesday.

Clements, a married father-of-two, joined the station last summer, having been the long-time presenter of Q Radio's breakfast show.

His death has prompted an outpouring of tributes across Northern Ireland and beyond.

Having turned Q Radio's breakfast show into one of the most popular programmes in the region, Clements landed what he described as his "dream" job at the BBC last year.

He worked as a presenter for BBC NI's coverage of the Open golf championship at Royal Portrush in July, and in September became the new host of Radio Ulster's mid-morning show.

His brother Gavin described him as his "inspiration and hero".
