Dev­as­tated Scott said: “I don’t re­ally look at so­cial me­dia, but I’ve seen com­ments along the lines of, ‘He’s en­joy­ing the lime­light’ and that re­ally hurts.”

The 56-year-old has also told how Bar­bara, who played Peggy Mitchell in EastEn­ders, now asks him to get in touch with her late mother.

He said: “She’ll of­ten ask me if I’ve ever lived in our house be­fore – we’ve lived to­gether for 26 years. She’ll ask me if I can get in touch with her mum, be­cause she’d love to speak to her.

“This ill­ness is slowly strip­ping away the love of my life, right in front of me.

“Do­ing what I do for Alzheimer’s aware­ness is the only way I feel I can fight back. It’s my way of go­ing ‘Sod you!’ to this hor­ren­dous dis­ease.”

Scott re­alised some­thing was wrong with his 82-year-old wife when she kept re­peat­ing her­self.

He said of one en­counter with a fan: “I re­mem­ber one kind lady look­ing at me and nod­ding with a very gentle smile, as if to say she knew, she’d been through it all with a loved one. I’ll never for­get that.”
