The comedian, who passed away almost a year ago last April aged 62, has instead left half of the sum to a charity set up in her name.

Victoria left thousands to friends in her will

Victoria was married to the magician for 22 years before their split in 2002, and he is believed to have been with her when she died, following a short battle with cancer.

Victoria left her £4 million home in north London to her children Grace, 28, and Henry, 24, a cottage in the Lake District and her photos and diaries, which she has requested are kept private.

Sums ranging from £5,000 to £25,000 were given to friends.

The star was one of Britain's best-loved comedians

On Friday it was revealed that Victoria will be celebrated with a star-studded six-part TV series looking back at her work.

Our Friend Victoria will air on BBC One next month, with Wood's closest friends and colleagues delving into the archive to introduce and celebrate her work from four decades in the entertainment industry.

Julie Walters, a long-time collaborator and friend of Wood's - who starred with her in Wood And Walters and Victoria Wood As Seen On TV - will front one of the episodes.

Michael Ball, Maxine Peake and Daniel Rigby have also been confirmed as presenters.
