When Lynda came in to record her interview with us two weeks ago non of us knew it would be her last. So here it is in full; a special moment with our beautiful, courageous, funny, talented and irreplaceable Loose Woman, Lynda Bellingham.
We've been overwhelmed at the response we've had from you for Lynda over the past few weeks, and the last few days has been exceptional. Thank you, our viewers for your beautiful tributes.
Part two of Lynda's interview...
Please join us today from 12.30pm as we play Lynda's last ever Loose Women interview. We'll be celebrating the life of our beautiful, talented and remarkable friend and colleague. A final tribute to a wonderful actress.
You may not have heard of Grayson Perry, but he is a national treasure who started his career as a controversial ‘transvestite potter’ and has since become a Turner-Prize-winning artist, BAFTA-winning documentary maker, author, social commentator, curator and lecturer.
Famed as much for his art as his cross-dressing he'll be appearing on the show today dressed as his female persona, Claire.
The world lost some of its magic today, and we one of the best colleagues we could have ever wished for; Loose Women will never be the same again.
From much loved Oxo mum to witty Loose Woman, Lynda Bellingham touched so many lives, and faced her final days with determination, dignity and an awe-inspiring positivity.
Thankyou for all your tributes and messages...
Former Loose Woman, Lynda Bellingham, who had been suffering from cancer in recent months, died yesterday "in her husband's arms", her agent Sue Latimer said today.
The 66-year-old star, best known for her long-running role as a mother in the Oxo TV adverts, had been battling colon cancer for some time.
Our thoughts and wishes go to her family on this incredibly sad day. And to all those whose lives she toughed so deeply, as she did ours.
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 decision to give up chemo was a huge relief because I took back some control of myself. It's there on the table if I want it. I don't want the boys or my husband to see me die a little sad old lady. I want to go out there as I am.
If you or a loved one are affected by cancer then there are a selection of charities and support groups available.
