The Assassination of Gianni Versace viewers left confused as Vicar Of Dibley theme tune is played at fashion designer's funeral before dramatic ending

Viewers noticed that the music to accompany one of the most emotional scenes in the series – where Andrew Cunanan can be seen mouthing the lyrics as he watches the service on TV while in hiding – was the same as the famous soundtrack to the British sitcom.

Fans took to Twitter to ponder why the piece of classical music had been chosen for, what was intended to be, a very sad moment in the series.

One wrote: "Good idea to stick on #TheVicarOfDibley at Versace's funeral, cheer things up a bit. #AmericanCrimeStory."

Another commented: "He was a fan of The Vicar Of Dibley? #AmericanCrimeStory"

A third shared: "who knew the versaces were such big vicar of dibley fans #ACSVersace."



However, the piece of music is in fact very famous in its own right.

It is known as The Lord Is My Shepherd or Psalm 23, and it was originally written around 1000BC.

One viewer correctly identified it: "That glorious rendition of Psalm 23 with the sick killer Andrew Cunanan watching on was TV genius.#ACSVersace #AmericanCrimeStory #gianniversace #andrewcunanan #assassinationofgianniversace"




The final episode of the series saw a dramatic end as Andrew Cunanan, played by Darren Criss, kills himself with a gun as he is corned by police in the Miami house boat he is hiding in.

In a flashback scene that follows, Gianni refuses to take him on as an apprentice and swerves his kiss.

One fan wrote about the tragic end to the episode: "I know he was mad, bad, narcissist, evil killer but can’t help feeling sad for him."

On the performance of actor Darren Criss, another commented: "Anyone not watching #ACSVersace is missing one of the TV events of recent years: @DarrenCriss is utterly extraordinary."


The TV show told the story of Gianni's murder on 15 July 1997, at the age of 50, on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion.

It showed his killer Andrew, who had already murdered four men in the US, go on the run.

Nine days later he committed suicide, as the series shows, on a house boat, and took with him any clues as to why he did what he did.

The famous Italian's funeral was held in Milan Cathedral and attended by over 2,000 people including Princess Diana and Elton John.

He was cremated and his ashes returned to the family's estate near Cernobbio, Italy.
