I woke up this morning to read the news on the BBC News Twitter that the beautiful Lynda Bellingham has been diagnosed with cancer.
This is such sad news. I turned 25 last month, and grew up in the 90’s – any 90’s kid will remember Lynda Bellingham from the Oxo adverts. Of course, she has done Loose Women on ITV and loads of other stuff, but to me she will always be the Oxo mum.
The good thing about the Oxo adverts is that 99% of the time, the name of the item is never said. Normally just a little logo in the bottom right at the end of the advert. There are not many TV adverts that can do that and still get the message across.
We are in 2013 now, and cancer should be dead and gone. This month we have had Bernie Nolan pass away, snooker player Ali Carter diagnosed with testicular cancer and now Lynda Bellingham.
Hopefully one day cancer will end.
