Starr died on 9 May at the age of 76 following a heart attack at his home on the Costa del Sol.
Now, Jo Billam has come forward to claim that her mother had a brief romance with Starr while he was performing in Bournemouth in the 1970s.
Jo’s mother reportedly told her that she was born as a result of her fling with Starr.
The 44-year-old told The Mirror: ‘I know how this will look – people will think I am after Freddie’s money. I couldn’t care less about that. All I want is to end the agony of not knowing who my real dad is.’
According to Jo, she discovered the news on her 16th birthday after her dad encouraged her to ask her mum about her paternity.
She said: ‘I could not believe what I was hearing. She told me she was working as a ­waitress at a hotel in Bournemouth when one night Freddie Starr stepped in to save her from two punters who were harassing her.

Jo says her mother, who died in 2017 aged 70, would meet with Starr at his home in Westbourne and that’s where she was conceived.
While she was initially upset about the news, Jo says she became more concerned about any illnesses that Starr had that might have been passed onto her and ‘could save one of my children’.
Appealing to Starr’s family, Jo added: ‘If just one relative would please agree to do a DNA test, that would mean the world to me. All I am asking for is closure.’

Starr had been married five times and had six children, including Tara Coleman-Starr who described the comedian as ‘evil’ and ‘violent’.
