Lynda Bellingham's publisher thinks the late star "would be thrilled" that her autobiography has made it onto the best sellers list
Lynda Bellingham "would be thrilled" her autobiography has made the bestseller list.
According to her publisher, the late Loose Women' star - whose book 'There's Something I've Been Dying To Tell You' sold 35,084 copies in just a week after she died from cancer on October 19 this year - would have been pleased the work is reaching such a wide audience and helping more people.
According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, the book's publisher, Hodder, said: "Lynda would have been thrilled. She wrote it to help people and wanted it to reach the widest audience."
Lynda passed away aged 66 in her husband, Michael Pattemore's arms after battling colon cancer, which had spread to her lungs and liver.
Michael - who had been married to Lynda for six years - recently confessed he tried to call the late star to ask her the whereabouts of the outfit she had requested to be buried in.
He said: "[I] had to stop myself ringing her".
It was recently announced Lynda's funeral will be a Royal Variety-style celebration of her life with Michael honouring the beloved actress and television presenter's dying wish by inviting her close pals to give her "one last show".
Christopher Biggins, Maureen Lipman, Jane McDonald, Denise Welch and Nickolas Grace will all perform at the celebration in Somerset next Monday (03.11.14) before a memorial service is held in London at a later date.
