Rip #BarbaraWindsor. A fantastic UK icon that will be sadly missed.
Dame Barbara Windsor – best known for her roles as Peggy Mitchell in EastEnders and in the Carry On films – has died aged 83.
She died peacefully at 8.35pm on Thursday at a London care home with her husband Scott Mitchell by her side, after suffering from dementia.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Dame Barbara had “campaigned for the lonely and the vulnerable – and cheered the world up with her own British brand of harmless sauciness and innocent scandal”.
