Ross Kemp gives emotional Babs Windsor update on GMB as her dementia worsens
Ross Kemp shared an update on Barbara Windsor 's condition on Wednesday's Good Morning Britain while making an appeal for The Royal British Legion.
EastEnders and Carry On legend Barbara, 83, is suffering from Alzheimer's disease, and her husband Scott Mitchell was forced to move her into a care home earlier this year as her condition worsened.
Concerned, presenters Kate Garraway and Charlotte Hawkins asked after Babs' health on the show, as the interview with the actor drew to a close.
Giving viewers an update, Ross said: "The reason I'm doing this today is because I'm effectively standing in for her."
He continued: "I spoke to her on FaceTime on Sunday with her husband Scott.
"She recognised me but I think we all have to be realistic that there is no cure for Alzheimer's presently and it's probably not going to get better for her."
Urging viewers to leave a red poppy in their windows in support of Remembrance Day, he added: "It's an honour to be talking on her behalf."
Charlotte replied: "She's very much in our hearts at the moment."
