Eastenders legend has revealed the news today.
Dame Barbara Windsor’s husband Scott Mitchell has broken the news that his wife has been diagnosed with Alzheimers disease.
Barbara Windsor best known as Peggy Mitchell in Eastenders was given the diagnosis in April 2014.
Scott wanted to let the public know of the news so they could carry on as normal without the press wondering what was wrong with her incase something happened in public.
Mitchell, 55, revealed: ‘Since her 80th birthday last August, a definite continual confusion has set in, so it’s becoming a lot more difficult for us to hide.’
‘She often asks me, “Do the public know that I’m not well?” I said they didn’t yet, but we were going to have to let them know because so many people are talking now. But if she forgets that she gave me her blessing, well, I’ll just have to deal with that.’
Peggy Mitchell was killed off in 2016 on Eastenders
