Lynda Bellingham 1948 - 2014

Lynda Bellingham 1948 - 2014


To Blakes 7 fans, she was 'Muller's lady' in Headhunter.

To Doctor Who fans, she was the Inquisitor in Trial of a Time Lord, with Colin Baker. She also appeared with Peter Davison in All Creatures Great and Small and At Home with the Braithwaites.

However, to millions of UK TV viewers she was best known as the Oxo Mum in a series of gravy commercials that ran for 16 years. The mini-dramas that played out in the various advertisements broke new ground as the first soap-style commercials, pre-dating by several years the Nescafe romance of Anthony Head and Sharon Maughan.

Lynda's acting career spanned five decades, and she was rarely out of work, appearing on stage, on television and in movies. Her stage roles included Shakespeare and comedies, and she considered her starring role in the 2008 touring production of Calendar Girls as one of her greatest triumphs. On TV, she appeared in dramas, comedies and sit-coms; playing leading roles, regular characters and guest characters in a wide range of series.

She joined the panel of ITV's Loose Women in 2007 and continued as a regular panellist until 2011. "At the end of the day, I am a failed sex goddess," she once said. "I have never quite cracked it. I am still hopeful of winning an Oscar for best newcomer, aged 85."

Lynda was awarded an OBE in the 2014 New Year Honours for her charity work.

In 2013 Lynda was diagnosed with cancer. In August 2014 she decided to cease chemotherapy treatment, but hoped she would survive to see her final Christmas. Sadly, she passed away on 19th October, in her husband's arms.

***


Lynda's final interview on Loose Women was screened on 22nd October and is available to view on ITVPlayer.

You can see some of her Oxo commercials on YouTube

Her second book of memoirs, There’s Something I’ve Been Dying to Tell You, in which she writes about her illness with honesty and humour, was published on 9th October, and is availabe from Amazon. Amazon
