Christopher Biggins reveals that close friend Dame Barbara Windsor is "a little confused" by the coronavirus lockdown.

Christopher Biggins has revealed that close friend Dame Barbara Windsor is finding the coronavirus lockdown 'confusing'.

The 82-year-old former EastEnders actress, who is suffering from Alzheimer's disease, is currently isolating at home with husband Scott Mitchell.

"She's a little confused as to what's going on because no one can visit her," Biggins told The Sun.

"She's used to having a lot of visitors but now she's asking why people have stopped coming to see her.

"It's not because she thinks 'they don't like me' because her husband Scott explains to her but she just forgets the explanation and she asks all the time.

"So it's a frustrating time for them both."

One of the nation's most beloved stars, Windsor left her role as Peggy Mitchell in EastEnders in 2016, two years after she was diagnosed with the debilitating disease.
