Well-wishers will gather today to remember the actress Lynda Bellingham who died in October.

A memorial service for the star is being held at S t Stephen’s Church in the heart of the City of London.

Bellingham, best known for her role in the Oxo TV adverts, had colon cancer which later spread to her lungs and liver and died in the arms of her husband, Michael Pattemore, at a London hospital.

She hit the headlines with her very public reaction to her illness when she announced she had decided to end her treatment to limit the amount of suffering her family would witness.

In her last few weeks, she spoke openly about her illness and its effect on her family. Her book, called There’s Something I’ve Been Dying To Tell You, discussed it in detail and became a best-seller.

Her funeral in Crewkerne, Somerset, was attended by showbiz stars including her Loose Women co-stars Coleen Nolan, Jane McDonald, Andrea McLean and Kate Thornton, as well as Julia Sawalha, Coronation Street’s Helen Worth, Robert Lindsay, Giles Brandreth and Downton Abbey’s Julian Fellowes.
