Barbara Windsor was married to Scott Mitchell, who she Wednesday in 2000 in a ceremony at the Dorchester hotel with only three witnesses.

Former Labour MP and broadcaster George Galloway tweeted: "Dame Barbara Windsor passing brings a dismal year to almost a close".

"She was such an icon, in their generation as well as ours". I can hear that laugh now as I sit and think about her.

"We all knew that she wasn't in great health, but it's still a shock when it comes".

"It was quite visible, the effect [Alzheimer's] had had on [Dame Barbara]".

Another added: "Incredibly sad about Dame Barbara Windsor".

"There's still a lot more to do though".

Shane replied: "Not for a long time, no".

"I spent the last seven days by her side", he said. There was a tech fault, the lights went off and they couldn't get them back on.

She returned for cameo appearances in the soap over the next few years but in 2016 she played Peggy for the final time.

Nitin Ganatra, who played played Masood Ahmed on EastEnders, first in 2007 and leaving for a second time past year, said it was "devastating news".

Katie says she was inspired to take on the fundraising challenges after cheering on runners taking part in the 2019 London Marathon - in a team called Barbara's Revolutionaries.

Amanda Holden wrote on Instagram: "I was a big fan and was thrilled to meet Barbara on several occasions. she was an absolute joy".

The training has since helped with her grief.

"Honestly she really just is the ultimate professional".

"I feel I'm on an emotional rollercoaster".

Dame Barbara Windsor and her husband wanted to raise awareness of dementia after the star was diagnosed with the condition.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who met Windsor at Downing Street past year to highlight concerns over dementia care and once had a cameo with her in "EastEnders", led the tributes.

"From the moment Barbara stepped foot in Walford she created an icon in Peggy Mitchell, our formidable landlady, who the audience instantly fell in love with", it said. She died in a London care home, her husband said.

She later said "meeting Scott is the best thing that ever happened to me". Alzheimer's is a horribly cruel disease.

He will often forget what room he is in, won't know where the bedroom or bathroom is, and his wife Karen will have to guide him through the process of getting changed.

Dame Barbara appeared on video, in her home in 2018, to speak publicly about dementia.

On keeping their marriage alive, she went on: "I don't want to kill what we have". Photo: Getty ImagesBarbara and Scott posed outside 10 Downing Street as she delivered a petition calling for urgent action on dementia care.
