Bar­bara vows she’ll carry on

Scottish Daily Mail - - News -

DAME Bar­bara Wind­sor has spo­ken pub­licly for the first time since it was re­vealed she has Alzheimer’s dis­ease.

The for­mer star of EastEnders and the Carry On films said she ‘still in­tends to carry on’ and thanked fans for their sup­port. Dame Bar­bara, pic­tured, was di­ag­nosed with Alzheimer’s in April 2014 but she and her hus­band Scott Mitchell de­cided they would tell only close friends and fam­ily.

In a pre-recorded au­dio mes­sage on ITV’s Loose Women to pan­el­list Jane Moore, who broke the story last week, the ac­tress, 80, said: ‘Hi Jane, and all the Loose Women, it’s Bar­bara Wind­sor here! I just want to wish you a very happy birth­day, dar­ling Jane. Thank you, thank you so much for be­ing a loyal and good friend and help­ing Scott share my re­cent news.

‘Have a great day and have no fear, as I still in­tend to carry on.’
