On Sunday 19th October 2014, TV star Lynda Billingham died in the arms of her husband at the age of 66.
She had been battling colon cancer since July 2013 however it was only last month she openly revealed her courageous decision to stop chemotherapy. She wanted to take control of her life and had planned to spend one last Christmas with her family as she was expected to live until January 2015 going forward without treatment.
Lynda was widely known for her role on the “Oxo Family’ TV adverts, All Creatures Great and Small, Strictly Come Dancing and panellist on ITV’s Loose Women of which her final appearance is to be aired on Wednesday.
Another treasure taken by bowel cancer and our deepest thoughts go out to her friends and family.
