I was shocked to hear of the passing of Lynda Bellingham on Sunday. I had known she was terminally ill, but I really thought, as did many others, that she would live to see a final Christmas and have a few months to share with her family and friends as she had planned. To be taken so soon is just so cruel, but I have known so many in recent years for whom cancer has no regard for wishes and wants. It is so sad that Lynda won't be able to spend a final Christmas, as she had wished, with her family. I will remember Lynda for her many acting roles, mainly as I grew up during the 80's and 90's and for her iconic role in the oh so loved and cherished Oxo advertisements on TV. I support fully the campaign set in motion following Lynda's death for the commercial channels to show the classic Oxo adverts over Christmas. I so hope someone will make it happen. It has also been suggested that we should hang an Oxo cube on our Christmas tress this year. What a wonderful idea. Watching the ITV Loose Women interview with Lynda shown today has reminded me of what a talented, funny and remarkable person she was, and one of my favourite actresses. Rest in peace.
