Lynda Bellingham's widower NOT invited to stepson's wedding

The family's feud is getting worse and worse

Lynda Bellingham's widower was banned from attending her son's wedding after a long-running argument within the family.

Her son, Robert Peluso, 29, married Savannah Brown in a lavish ceremony in New York earlier in the month, with his brother Michael as his best man, but stepdad Michael was not present at the nuptials reports The Mirror.

The wedding and reception was at New York's Gramercy Park, where Savannah and her bridesmaids entertained the guests with a special dance routine.

Robert's proud brother tweeted the happy news, and said: "They did it! #mymateonapril8th #bro #wedding #bestman".

According to the Mirror, they honeymooned in the Caribbean after their special day.

The brothers have spoken out about how they were shocked by an interview that Michael did with Spirit and Destiny magazine.

He told the publication that he had had sex with Lynda's ghost. "As her body snuggled into mine, I breathed in the familiar scent of the woman I’d been lucky enough to spend 10 wonderful years with", he said.

Adding: "'Make love to me,' Lynda whispered, her face nuzzling into mine.

“Kissing her, I gazed down into those beautiful brown eyes.

"'I love you,' she smiled, and I closed my eyes, luxuriating in the warmth of her low, husky voice."

After the Loose Women panellist passed away, it was found that Lynda's will had left everything to Michael.

She had expected Michael to give her sons a large sum of her money, but he reportedly only gave them £750 of her fortune.

She would come into a room and light the place up. Everybody loved her.

Lynda was known as the "nation's favourite mum" after she started her TV career in the Oxo adverts, which she played a loving wife and mum who cooked delicious meals for her family.

Nadia Sawalha previously spoke about how wonderful she was and that she was "heartbroken" by her death.

Talking to ITV's Lorraine Kelly, she said: "Anyone that knew Lynda and knew her well, knew that she was this absolute live wire.

"She would come into a room and light the place up. Everybody loved her.

"She got me my first ever job on the Oxo ads ... I played her son's girlfriend in it and then we worked together on [TV series] Second Thoughts.

"She played my sister's mum. And we all absolutely adored her."
