The Loose Women panellists have paid tribute to their friend and colleague Lynda Bellingham.

Ruth Langsford opened today's show (October 20), by speaking about Bellingham.

She said: "We want this to be a celebration of Lynda as well, she was such fun and so full of energy and verve but we miss her so much."

Coleen Nolan added: "We miss her already so much. It's so hard not to be sad and the only thing that I think will get me through the day is that I can almost feel her behind me, whacking me, going, 'Get on with it! Stop being sad'.

"She was such a strong woman right up until the end... brave and funny. I finished her autobiography and I laughed and I cried. The strength. It shines through in the whole book and just the honesty of her. She was such a fantastic woman."

Since the early 1980s, her name was rarely mentioned in print without it being prefaced with Oxo mum.

During her career, though, she starred on TV as the vets wife Helen Herriot in All Creatures Great and Small in the 80s and as one of two divorcees trying to forge a relationship in the 90s sitcom Second Thoughts, opposite James Bolam. On stage she was best known for playing the lead in a touring production of Calendar Girls between 2008 and 2012. She was also, »

The Essential Movies & TV to Stream This Week – September 15th 2014

15 September 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

First of all, something of an apology. I have been writing this column thinking that every single title due for release the following Monday would of course be released via some kind of pay to stream service. Of course it would, we are living in the future, and this is how things are done isn’t it?

Apparently not, last week I included Jeremy Saulnier’s much loved Blue Ruin in the pay to stream section and then it didn’t come out the way I thought it might. Turns out that some companies still have a fairly limited release pattern so Blue Ruin was released by channel 4’s DVD label and appeared on DVD and Blu but didn’t show up to stream on any of the major providers, not even Sky Store or Playstation Network.

So turns out that being a channel 4 release, you can of course rent »
