Following the news of David Bowie's untimely death, fans have gathered to pay tribute at the Starman's star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

Beginning late last night fans began adding candles, flowers, small bottles of alcohol and lots of stardust (or glitter, if you prefer). Similar tributes have been growing around the world.

A wreath of flowers was added later this morning as more fans gathered to share their thoughts and memories of the late musician.
