Jane Lynch has said that the upcoming Cory Monteith memorial episode of Glee is "beautiful".

The actress, who plays Sue Sylvester on the popular series, tweeted, "Just read Cory Monteith memorial episode. Most beautiful thing."

Cory Monteith, who played Finn Hudson on the show, passed away last month from "mixed drug toxicity" at the age of 31.

It has been confirmed that his character will not die from a drug overdose in the series.

Lynch also spoke about coming to terms with Monteith's death, "You know, it's tough. Everybody has a relationship with him and we all express our grief in different ways so I'll only speak for myself. I love him and I honour him and every day I go to work I walk by his trailer and O go ' He should be in there'."

Glee will return for its fifth season in the US in September.
