An Oxo advert featuring the late Lynda Bellingham is to be screened on Christmas Day after her fans called for its return as a tribute to the much-loved actress.

Oxo said hundreds of thousands of people had been in touch with the brand asking for the 1984 My Christmas ad to be shown again in memory of Bellingham.

The 66-year-old, known for her role as the Oxo mum and as a Loose Women presenter, had spoken of her plans to spend one more Christmas with her family just days before she lost her battle with cancer on October 19.

Premier Foods, which owns the Oxo brand, said: "The My Christmas Oxo advert, starring much-loved actress Lynda Bellingham, will be rescreened in memory of her life and career."
