The friends and family of Lynda Bellingham will gather today to say goodbye to the actress who died last month.
Her husband, Michael Pattemore, and friends from the world of television will pay tribute to the star at her funeral in the Somerset town of Crewkerne.
The actress, best known for her long-running role as the mother in the Oxo TV adverts, had colon cancer which later spread to her lungs and liver.
She was diagnosed with cancer last July and said she decided to end her treatment to limit the amount of suffering her family would witness.
I can tell you now that the words on her gravestone will be 'The curtain went up on May 31 1948, and the final curtain went down on October 19 2014'.
