Dam Barbara Windsor

Dame Barbara Windsor has moved to full-time residential care after her Alzheimer’s worsened during lockdown.

The 82-year-old former EastEnders and Carry On film star has gone to a home in London.


Scott Mitchell, her husband, said the decision had been taken on the advice of her neurologist.

Mr Mitchell told The Sun:

“I feel I’m on an emotional rollercoaster.

“I walk around, trying to keep busy, then burst into tears.

“It feels like a bereavement.

“It’s always been my biggest fear that one day I would have to take her somewhere and she’d be thinking: ‘Why would he do this to me?’

“That fear has become a reality.

“It’s something I never wanted.”

Mr Mitchell said about leaving his wife at the centre:

“I’ll never forget the feeling of emptiness.

“I felt sick in the pit of my stomach that I’d left her.

“I still feel like that.”
