Christopher Biggins has been friends with former Carry On star, Dame Barbara Windsor for years now, and her battle with dementia hasn't been easy for anybody to see.
However, Biggins has taken it especially hard and opened up recently about a heartbreaking encounter he had with Windsor a few weeks back.
Poor old Barb. However, Biggins insisted that she was still full of energy despite her symptoms becoming more and more pronounced.
He told The Mirror: "When I’m with Barbara, I don’t have sadness or tears because she would see that and I don’t want her to. So I’m always upbeat with her.
"The last time I had lunch with her was three weeks ago.
"She looked wonderful, she had tremendous energy and we laughed a lot. But she asked me 'what are you doing?' eight or nine times because she’d forgotten my answer.
Forgetting my answers each time was very sad. But I’d only show that sadness after I’d left her.
"It’s such an open, caring question and typical of her.
"Forgetting my answers each time was very sad. But I’d only show that sadness after I’d left her."
Forgetting my answers each time was very sad.
Biggins and Barbara first met on the musical Guys and Dolls which they toured around the country and they have been friends ever since.
Biggins had previously revealed that Barbara had forgotten she was ever famous after her Alzheimer's disease diagnosis.
He was also worried that the disease would prevent her from remembering the highlights of her incredible career.
Barbara was initially diagnosed with the condition back in 2014, however, her husband, Scott Mitchell only made the diagnosis public in 2018.
Meanwhile, Barbara and her husband have been appointed by The Alzheimer's Society as ambassadors, and they recently wrote an open letter to new prime minister, Boris Johnson, calling on him to sort out dementia care once and for all.
In a new YouTube video, the couple asked the public to join them in signing the letter before it's delivered to 10 Downing Street in September.
