“So on a day when we’re celebrating friendship, it seemed only fitting we take a moment to remember Lynda.”

Loose Women viewers were left in tears watching the scenes, taking to Twitter to remember the star.

One person commented: “I was lucky enough to meet Lynda Bellingham a couple of times. She was a lovely lady. #LooseWomen.”

Lynda sadly passed away in October 2014 from colorectal cancer.

She starred on the show from 2007 and 2011, and announced the news about her diagnosis in 2013.

A few months before she died, Lynda revealed that she was stopping chemotherapy so she could spend one last Christmas with her family.

Sadly, Lynda passed away before she could spend Christmas with her family.
