“I just miss her so much already” Una Healy Shares Her Grief Over Friend Lynsey Bennett

"We shared some of the fondest memories I’ve ever had"

Una Healy has shared her heartache over losing her dear friend Lynsey Bennett, who passed away from cervical cancer last week.

The 34-year-old was diagnosed with cervical cancer back in 2017, following the alleged misinterpretation of smear slides, which she settled high court action for in 2021.

Her family confirmed that she had passed away on Friday.

Una and Lynsey were firm friends and she could not hide her grief when she filled in for Karen Koster on The Six O’Clock Show.

“I just miss her so much already. She was a very, very special person,” she explained.

“She came into my life in the last couple of years. We shared some of the fondest memories I’ve ever had. We went on a family [holiday] together to Disneyland during the summer.”

She continued: “She lived her life to the full and my heart goes out to her family, her friends, and especially to her two little girls Hailee and Zoe.”

After Lynsey’s family shared the news of her passing on Friday, Una took to social media to remember her friend.

“It is with great sadness that the family of Lynsey Bennett wish to announce that Lynsey passed away peacefully last night.”

“Lynsey’s beautiful girls, father, sisters, family and friends are heartbroken at the passing of Lynsey at the young age of 34 years and would appeal for privacy at the moment.”
