    Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor has died today aged 79, and RIP Elizabeth Taylor quickly became a trending term on Twitter, as fans paid tribute.

    One of her former husbands Richard Burton also featured in the trends list.

    Celebrities were among those to share their memories of the screen legend.

    Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton wrote: "So sad to hear Elizabeth Taylor has passed away. A hollywood legend. Cat on a hot tin roof is one of my fave films. RIP"
    Singer Kylie Minogue referenced Liz Taylor's love of diamonds, which saw her launch the hugely popular White Diamond perfume.

    Piers also picked favourite quotes, sharing: "Advice we should all follow: 'I've always admitted that I'm ruled by my passions.' Elizabeth Taylor" He then added: "And re her passions: 'I've only slept with men I've been married to. How many women can make that claim?' Elizabeth Taylor #goodpoint"
    Presenter EamonnHolmes recalled her beauty, writing: "Elizabeth Taylor - people forget she was one hell of an actress and one hell of a good looking woman in her prime. True Star."

He wrote: "RIP Elizabeth Taylor. Changed the lives of people living with and suffering from HIV and AIDS, all over the world. Werk! x"

    Singer George Michael wrote: "Such a sad day, Elizabeth Taylor was the last of the Hollywood greats, and a fantastically charming woman.

    "She was also the only person I've ever met that had violet eyes. They were genuinely violet. So beautiful.

    Singer Boy George said: "R.I.P the amazing Liz Taylor, goddess, actress, aids activist and one of the world's true beauties!"

    I found out about this from a friend a few hours ago and I couldn't believe it! I knew about her disease and at this age I should have expected it. It's just so sad how all those great people leave us alone so soon. They are the ones who shaped the media and who were the first ones to hit this generation with their talent!
    Elizabeth was a great actress, woman and human being! Rest In Peace! I love you Elizabeth!
