The late Dirty Dancing star Patrick Swayze has been cremated.

The star's ashes are currently being held at his lawyer's office, his death certificate states.

Is understood the remains will stay at the office until Swayze's wife Lisa Niemi arranges for them to be moved.

Website RadarOnline reports: "Patrick Swayze has been cremated and his wife Lisa is moving ahead with plans to scatter his remains on his New Mexico ranch."

It is unknown whether there are plans to hold a family memorial service for Swayze, who lost his battle with pancreatic cancer on Tuesday aged 57.

However, a public event is being planned in the town of Lake Lure, North Carolina, where much of 1987 movie Dirty Dancing was filmed.

The memorial service will take place on Sunday at Firefly Cove, used at Camp Chimney in the movie.

The ceremony is free to attend, but organisers want visitors to donate money to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
