Ross Kemp said he had a broken heart because his former mother Barbara Windsor didn’t recognize him – his fight with Alzheimer’s disease inspired him to make his last documentary.
Talking about his Ross Kemp documentary film: The character of Grant Mitchell, 55, who suffers from dementia, described his emotional reunion with a soapy legend.
When I arrived, she hugged me as one of her best friends.
Barbara was my mother on TV at EastEnders and she’s terribly funny and cheerful, with a rapier spirit – we’ve always laughed, on and off the set. But now she obviously doesn’t know who I am.
The close friendship between Ross and her husband Scott Mitchell, who also starred in the documentary and is Lady Barbara’s main protector, was inspired by the programme.
Ross Kemp is scheduled to travel to Good Morning, United Kingdom today to talk about the couple and what he thinks needs to be done to place Lady Barbara in a house.
