    Default Lynda Bellingham dies aged 66



    Simon Pegg was among one of the first high-profile names to have paid tribute to Lynda Bellingham, who died yesterday in her husband’s arms after losing her battle to colon cancer.
    “Lynda Bellingham, a gorgeous, brassy, funny, generous, talented human being,” tweeted Pegg. “My first TV mother figure and and a treasured friend.”
    The actress and television presenter has been fighting the disease since July 2013, and announced last month that she planned to end her chemotherapy.
    She had hoped to live until January, so she could spend one final Christmas with her family. She is survived by husband Michael Pattemore and two sons, Robbie and Michael.

    Radio 2 presenter Chris Evans described Bellingham as “an absolute mensch of the highest order”, while Good Morning Britain presenter Ben Shephard said she was “just wonderful to be around”.Ballroom dancer James Jordan – who Bellingham appeared with on 2009 Strictly Come Dancing – called the news “devastating”
    Kirstie Allsopp branded her an “inspiration” and told those fighting cancer and hoping to make it until after Christmas not “to give up hope”.
    Her fellow Loose Women panelists Lisa Maxwell, Denise Welch and Linda Robson also paid their respects on Twitter.
    She made her final appearance on the show last week.

    This is sad news but at least she went out on her terms. Quality of life means more than quantity and if she felt that the side effects from continuing with treatment would make what time she had left unbearable then she did the right thing. Brave lady.

    ^ Aww, good to hear she was nice in real life too.

    Such a shame she didn't get the last Christmas she wanted.

    Lynda Bellingham's widower has bought an eight-bedroom mansion for £605,000 after 'evicting' her sons from the family flat


    • Lynda Bellingham's widower Michael Pattemore bought £605,000 mansion
    • The 61-year-old also 'evicted' her sons from the family home in London
    • Pattemore and Lynda's sons are now embroiled in a dispute over her estate
    • He has been on exotic holidays and has claimed he sleeps with her ghost

    Lynda Bellingham's widower has bought an eight-bedroom mansion for £605,000 after reportedly evicting her two sons from the family flat.
    Michael Pattemore, 61, bought the Grade II listed Manse Manor Hall at Crewkerne, Somerset, in December 2015, just a year after the Loose Women star died of colon cancer.
    But her sons from a previous marriage, Robbie and Michael Peluso, say their stepfather 'evicted them' from their family home. They claim he sent them a text message while on holiday telling them to leave the North London flat he and Lynda bought for £1.1million in 2008.

    The property developer has faced an online backlash ever since claims surfaced that he had privately disowned the sons of Oxo mum Lynda, despite telling her he would look after them.
    The sons also claim Pattemore, Lynda's third husband, refused to give them a copy of her will and say they have each received just £750 in inheritance since she died - while the widower has spent thousands.





    Within months of her death, he had been to Dubai three times, as well as Peru, Canada and on a round-the-world trip for eight weeks.
    He has also posted selfies of himself in Canada, New Zealand, Tahiti, Australia and Cuba to his late wife's Twitter account.

    In one selfie he sips a glass of wine in front of Ayers Rock in Australia.
    Lynda's son Robbie, 27, a guest relations manager at a London hotel, told The Mirror: 'He said I’d have to move out as he’d decided to move to Somerset and wanted to rent out the flat.
    'I don’t think being asked to leave my home less than a year after my mum had died constitutes looking after her boys.'
    A source close to the family told the paper: 'Lynda told Michael he should look after Robbie and Michael. Now they’re complaining he hasn’t honoured his promise.
    'Meanwhile he’s bought an eight-bedroom house and been on all these holidays. I *wonder what Lynda’s sons will think about this. It seems to be a big contrast between his lifestyle and theirs.'
    Michael, a 32-year-old actor, previously told the Mail on Sunday: ‘He sat me down and instead of giving it [the will] to me, he read it.
    'He said, “This sum is to be split between you and Robbie, and another sum is to be split between you, Robbie, Bradley and Stacey,” who are his children.

    'But he added, “Everything’s been left to me, so it will go to you when I decide.” I was sitting there crying, thinking, “Oh God, no.”’
    Robbie said: ‘When he read it to me later, he actually chuckled and tried to make a joke, saying, “So you’d better not do anything to annoy me.”
    'He obviously realised how awkward it was that he’d effectively said he now had control over everything my mother had worked for her entire life.'
    Michael said: ‘Within a few months of Mum’s death, he’d been to Dubai three times, to Peru, to Canada to see where Mum was born and on a round-the-world trip for eight weeks.
    'He also went to Dublin for a hair transplant and he bought himself a brand-new Chevrolet Corvette, despite already driving a brand-new Range Rover my mum had bought him.
    ‘He hardly made a penny the entire time he was with my mother – it was all hers.
    ‘We started to wonder if he was rubbing our faces in it.'

    Just a few weeks ago, Pattemore faced a huge backlash after claiming in an interview with Spirit and Destiny magazine that he regularly had sex with Lynda's ghost.
    That 'disrespectful' interview marked the final straw, her hotel guest relations manager son Robbie, 27, said.
    'She should be remembered for all the wonderful work she did as an actress and the inspiring courage she showed at the end of her life, not for these tacky revelations that are tarnishing the reputation she worked so hard for,' he told the Mail on Sunday.
    'When I read the interview about her ghost, I knew it was time to stand up for her, and give our side of everything that’s happened since my mother’s death.
    'Our stepfather always says he’s close to us, but that’s not the case. We want the public to know that a lot of what they’ve been told just isn’t true.'
    Speaking recently about the allegations, Mr Pattemore has said the situation is 'frustrating' and insists the whole story hasn't been given.
    MailOnline has contacted him for comment.

    He's an absolute of shit of a man, how he can sleep at night I do not know...I guess not having a conscience helps.

    She was desperate to be loved and maybe at her age she thought he was her last real chance at a relationship so put her bullshit blinkers on? He's the type of chancer who would smell vulnerability a mile off and know how to say exactly what she wanted to hear and she fell for it hook line and sinker.

    So sad.

    So sad.
    She had a pretty rough time with men most of her life. Her first, very short lived, marriage was to a serial cheat and her second marriage was 15 years of severe emotional and physical abuse. She would have probably been easy pickings for husband #3.

    It's also interesting that Pattemore is now being referred to as a 'Property Developer' when he was actually a Spanish time-share sales rep...
