Lynda Bellingham as been in the business for over 40 years. She's starred in top TV dramas, been a Loose Woman, and got her kit off on stage in Calendar Girls.
Lynda had her fair share of knocks, not least her cancer diagnosis last year, but far from feeling sorry for herself she's been burning the midnight oil and moving into her next career phase of novelist.
Her debut opus, Tell Me Tomorrow has already won an award and she's busy writing her second novel as we speak. Lynda joins us to tell us all about it.
