Dame Barbara Windsoe best known for her roles in the Carry On films and playing Peggy Mitchel in Eastenders has died aged 83.

Dame Barbara Windsor starred in many of the Carry On films from 1964 to 1977 starring alongside Sid James, Charles Hawtree and Kenneth Williams.

In 1954 Winsor starred in the film ‘The belles of St Trinian’s as a school girl although did not get credited for the roll, she also starred ib the 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Dame Windsor starred on the small screen starring in Eastenders from 1994 to 2016 as Peggy Mitchell.

It will be her roles in both Carry On films and TV series where we think she will be best remembered, much of the original cast has passed away and sadly from what we can gather not from natural causes, ill health from Heart Attacks to Cancer took many lives of some of our best ever actors.

Sadly Dementia took Barbara Windsor. one of the greatest actresses of all time and one we shall never forget.
