Lynda Bellingham's family were delighted with the 'Loose Women' panellists' National Television Awards tribute to the late star.
The talk show's stars Coleen Nolan, Jane Moore, Kaye Adams and Jamelia all donned black outfits at the ceremony earlier this month and added various orange accessories, including handbags and shoes, in a nod to the TV star's charity Action Against Cancer.
Jamelia - who is currently working with the British Heart Foundation and Warburtons to educate the nation about a healthy balance diet - exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "It was something that was very important to show a tribute to her in some way.
"Her family were really chuffed that we chose to all wear orange which is the colour of her charity."
Lynda - who died in October last year after losing her battle with colon cancer - was a member of the 'Loose Women' panel from 2007 to 2011 and Jamelia is pleased the panelists were able to pay such a heartfelt tribute to the actress.
She added: "It was fantastic and I'm really, really glad we did it and I'm glad they're happy. Lynda was a very important part of 'Loose Women' and obviously we were very sad to see her go."
Warburtons and The British Heart Foundation have joined forces to educate the nation on the importance of a healthy balanced diet. Pick up a special donation pack of Warburtons wholemeal and raise funds for the BHF.
