Nadia Sawalha's outrage at Lynda Bellingham's widower
'Loose Women's Nadia Sawalha thinks Lynda Bellingham would have been "horrified" by her widower's claims he's had sex with her ghost.
The 51-year-old presenter is disgusted by Michael Pattemore's "outrageous" behaviour over the last 18 months since her death and is convinced his explicit remarks earlier this year would have broken the late star.
Speaking on 'Loose Women' today (11.04.16), the curly-haired beauty explained: "I have just been so uncomfortable... But the point is he sat on TV and said he's had sex with Lynda's ghost! That's outrageous, in my opinion it's outrageous ... I feel - from what I knew of Lynda - that she would have been horrified to hear him say that."
And Nadia - who knew Lynda very well - is devastated that Michael, who was reportedly left everything in the TV star's will, has allegedly deprived her sons Michael and Robbie of their inheritance, evicted them from their family home and squandered her cash on holidays.
She added: "This story really upsets me ... I used to know Lynda very well and I used to look after the boys when they were younger and she adored those children."
The heartbroken siblings are currently locked in a bitter feud with their stepfather - who married Lynda in 2008 - and are planning to contest their mother's will as they don't believe she would have left them nothing when she passed.
Michael, 32, said recently: "This isn't about money. It's about the fact that he's got control over everything my mother worked for her entire life, and we know that's not what she wanted ... We knew what she wanted for us. She told us many times she wanted to buy each of us a flat."
Lynda passed away in 2014 from bowel cancer.
