Late British actor Peter Gilmore bequeathed his entire fortune to his third wife and left his son out of his will.

The Carry On star passed away in February (13) at the age of 81 and it has now emerged he left a fortune of more than $1.5 million (£1 million) behind.

Britain's Mail on Sunday reports the actor left his entire estate to his third wife and former The Onedin Line co-star Anne Stallybrass. His only child, adopted son Jason, 47, was not included in the will.

Gilmore adopted Jason during his marriage to actress Una Stubbs.

Stallybrass says of the situation, "It is my husband's private business and I am not going to comment about it," while Stubbs adds, "It is nothing to do with me, I don't want to go into it."
