An intimate, compelling and Sunday Times bestselling memoir by the 'Oxo Mum' and Loose Women star
‘Looking back, perhaps the single biggest problem was fear. Fear of failure, fear of other people – but mostly fear of myself. It has taken many years to discover who I really am. It’s never too late to find yourself, however lost you may be …’
In Lynda Bellingham’s blisteringly honest autobiography, the much-loved actress and Loose Women panellist reveals the truth about her life, including her search for her birth mother, only to lose her again to Alzheimer’s, and her many years married to an abusive man while playing the ‘nation’s mum’ in the Oxo ads.
But Lynda never lost her sense of humour, and among the darker moments she recalls hilarious anecdotes from her time on stage and screen. Lost and Found is an inspiring story of getting through the tough times with the strong spirit of a survivor, and finally finding true love.
