Loose Women in Bellingham tribute

Stars of daytime show Loose Women are to wear co-ordinated outfits to tonight's National Television Awards in tribute to their late pal Lynda Bellingham.

Presenters Coleen Nolan, Kaye Adams, Linda Robson, Sherrie Hewson, Jane Moore, Janet Street Porter and Jamelia will wear black outfits with orange accessories, the colours of the charity Action Against Cancer.

The ITV hosts are backing the charity as it was a cause supported by Lynda, who lost her battle against cancer last year.

Her husband Michael Pattemore, who has become the charity's ambassador, said: "Lynda would so proud to see so many people supporting Action Against Cancer which is such a great charity ... one day we will beat this disease."

Coleen said: "Cancer affects so many lives and families and anything that might raise awareness of the work that these charities do is worthwhile.

"Lynda was such a fantastic Loose Woman and an incredible friend. She is always in our thoughts."

The charity's founder Hilary Craft said: "The funds raised in Lynda's memory will help to make possible truly groundbreaking work, aimed at improving the survival prospects and quality of life for cancer sufferers worldwide."
