EastEnders DVD makes fans furious Peggy Mitchell is missed off the cover

Barbara Windsor isn't among the icons featured.

A new EastEnders compilation DVD has made fans annoyed after show legend Peggy Mitchell was missed off the cover.

The Best of EastEnders features lots of clips from iconic Enders storylines over the years, presented by star Ian Woodyatt, who plays Ian Beale.

The cover shows some of Enders most famous stars including Kat and Alfie Moon, Den Watts, Dot Cotton and Mick Carter.

But Barbara Windsor – who played matriarch Peggy Mitchell for more than 20 years – doesn’t feature.

Former Enders star Danniella Westbrook, who played Peggy’s daughter Sam, was quick to notice that her on-screen mum had been snubbed.

“Wish Babs was on the cover,” she wrote on Twitter.

Lots of fans agreed with Danniella.

“Peggy was the queen vic,” one viewer said. “She should be centre.”

And another fan said: “Barbara Windsor should’ve been on the cover along with Phil & Grant.”

But an Enders spokesperson told the Daily Mail that Babs is featured on the DVD itself.

“The Mitchells, including some of Peggy’s memorable moments, feature prominently in the DVD’s content,” the spokesperson said.

And sharp-eyed fans will spot the back of Peggy’s head on the back cover, too, along with son Grant and best friend Pat Butcher.
