Who is Scott Mitchell?

Scott Mitchell is a former actor and recruitment consultant, who is married to EastEnders legend Barbara Windsor.

Many suggested that he was a gold-digging toyboy due to the age gap.

He said to The Sun Online: “Little did they know that after the breakdown of Bar’s second marriage, she was £1million in debt and we were talking about her coming to live in my two-bed flat.”

To clear the bills, Barbara toured the country with a one-woman music hall show.

What has Scott said about Barbara’s health?

Scott has stood by Barbara for years, and has now revealed the details of her ailing health in an exclusive, unpaid interview with The Sun.

On May 10, 2018, it was confirmed that the Carry On legend has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

The now 81-year-old has reportedly been ­taking medication to help manage the degenerative brain disease, but in recent weeks her symptoms of memory loss and confusion have grown steadily worse.
