Actress Lynda Bellingham Dies Aged 66

Actress and presenter, Lynda Bellingham has died aged 66.

The actress most notably known for starring in the OXO adverts, lost her fight with cancer yesterday (19 October).

In a statement on behalf of Bellingham's family, Sue Latimer said: "Lynda died peacefully in her husband's arms yesterday at a London hospital."

"Her family would like to thank the nurses and staff for their tremendous care and support."

"Actor, writer and presenter - to the end Lynda was a consummate professional."

The actress had announced in July 2013 she had been diagnosed with colorectal cancer. In September this year, she had confirmed that the cancer had metastasized to her lungs and liver, and she had months to live. She announced she had made the choice to stop her chemotherapy in November so she could have one last Christmas with her family and eventually pass away in January 2015.

Her husband, Michael Pattermore, said: "The past ten years with Lynda have been the best of my life, I've thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Believe it or not, we've never even argued, which I think is probably because we share the same sense of humour."

"She's so funny when she's telling her jokes and so genuinely kind, not to mention so talented. And she's probably one of the most loving mothers I've ever seen."

Lynda had been a panellist on ITV’s ‘Loose Women’ between 2007 and 2011. 'Loose Women' have confirmed Lynda Bellingham's family have requested her final interview to be aired as planned on Wednesday 22nd October, 12:30pm on ITV.
