Barbara Windsor's husband claims her ghost still haunts their home and reveals her heart-breaking wish before death | The Sun
BARBARA Windsor's husband has claimed the late actress' ghost still haunts their home.
Barbara Windsor had a life full of achievements on and off screen. From the enormously successful and much loved Carry On films, to more than twenty years in Albert Square as Peggy Mitchell.
The iconic actress sadly passed away in 2020, at the age of 83 after battling with Alzheimer's disease.
Barbara's husband Scott Mitchell who was married to Barbara for 27 years, has opened up about the death of his beloved wife on the Soap From The Box Podcast.
Scott said he still feels Barbara by his side and insisted that there's certain times in the house when he knows she is present.
He went on to describe the feeling as "wonderful," saying his skin would tingle and come alive and he could sense that he's not by himself.

Scott said: " I'll look at a picture of her and just sense something, I know she's there.
"She always said to me, even before the dementia, 'Listen love, I'll go first because that's how it'll be between you and me. When I go I want you to be broken hearted, cry your eyes out, the whole works.'
"'But when you get over all that promise me you'll have the best life ever because that's what I did'. I know that's what she wants for me. I know that whatever I go on to do she'll be looking down only wanting good things for me."
The widower also spoke candidly about his late wife's love for Amy Winehouse, saying she became a "regular visitor" to their house, sometimes on her own, sometimes with a friend.
Scott shared: "I hope that's because she felt safe here. She'd always offer to help Barbara learn her lines, she absolutely loved it.
"I do believe Amy felt safe here. They were both ladies who were constantly being stopped and recognised."

Although he had spent five days at Barbara’s bedside in the care home, he revealed, “I wasn’t with her at her last breath.”
