Many of the stars from Eastenders who have worked with Dame Barbara in the past took to Twitter today to wish her a happy birthday.
Ross Kemp, who played the part of her son Grant Mitchell on the popular soap said “Wishing my dear friend Dame Barbara a very Happy Birthday. Lots of love to you Bar xx”.
Other stars including Lacey Turner, who played Stacey Slater and Tamsin Outhwaite who played Mel Owen took time out to add their best wishes. Earlier this year her husband, Scott Mitchell, stated that she would probably have to go into care as her condition was worsening.
He said that it was something that he “feared greatly” but that he knew it would have to happen eventually. Just days ago it was reported that Dame Barbara had now been moved to a full time residential care home.
