A woman says she wants the relatives of Freddie Starr to take a DNA test in order to find out if he was truly her father.
Jo Billam was told she was Starr's daughter by her mother, as a result of a fling she had with the comic when he had been performing in Bournemouth in the 1970s.
Following the 76-year-old's death at his home in the Costa del Sol earlier this month, Jo, 44, says it became more important to her than ever to learn the truth.
The mother-of-two said she understands how it will look and that she believes people will think she's 'just after Freddie's money'.

Speaking to The Mirror she said: 'I could not care less about that. All I want is to end the agony of not knowing who my real dad is.'
Jo, who works as a dementia care nurse said her mother, who died aged 70, in 2017, had confided in her about Starr on her 16th birthday.
'My dad, who turned out to be my step-dad, told me I needed to ask my mum about who my real dad was.
