A rather general form of spherical fluid collapse is formulated. The fluid is anisotropic, has shear, bulk and shear viscosities and is charged. It radiates energy through a heat flow or null radiation. The exterior solution is the charged Vaidya shining star solution. The general junction conditions are given. The main one represents a Riccati equation for the horizon function. We present a simple neutral solution, where the equation becomes a linear one. The whole mass of the star is radiated away without a remnant and the result is flat spacetime.
