The ITV hosts are backing the charity as it was a cause supported by Lynda, who lost her battle against cancer last year.

Her husband Michael Pattemore, who has become the charity’s ambassador, said: “Lynda would so proud to see so many people supporting Action Against Cancer which is such a great charity … one day we will beat this disease.”

Coleen said: “Cancer affects so many lives and families and anything that might raise awareness of the work that these charities do is worthwhile. Lynda was such a fantastic Loose Woman and an incredible friend. She is always in our thoughts.”

The charity’s founder Hilary Craft said: “The funds raised in Lynda’s memory will help to make possible truly groundbreaking work, aimed at improving the survival prospects and quality of life for cancer sufferers worldwide.”
