Monaco resident Sir Roger Moore has lost his stepdaughter, Christina Knudsen, to cancer. The former Bond actor, 88, broke the news with photos on Twitter. “Our beautiful daughter Christina (aka Flossie) lost her battle with cancer 25 July at 10 am. We are heartbroken.”

The daughter of Sir Roger’s fourth wife, Kristina “Kiki” Tholstrup, Ms Knudsen, 47, was previously married to investment banker Nikolaj Albinus and their high-profile wedding in the South of France was featured in Hello! magazine.

She had lived in London since 1997 and had worked in interior design and property development. In 2014, she launched Ochun, a private social club for single people.

She told London’s Evening Standard: “After I divorced I realised how difficult it was to meet like-minded people who were single. I was in my early 30s. All my friends were married, having kids, and I remember thinking ‘Will I have to go on the internet?’ It was a really shocking wake-up call.”
