He said: & # 39; I spoke with Scott last week. She has good days and days that are not so good. It is influenced by light, so when it gets dark, it becomes difficult.

& # 39; She is Barbara Windsor and we love her. I'm going to come by next week. & # 39;

Earlier this year, the actor told how Barbara can still recognize him despite the disease.

& # 39; Barbara has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, but she still knows who I am & # 39 ;, he said Daily Star in February.

& # 39; Scott told me a sweet story & # 39 ;, 70-year-old Biggins remembered. & # 39; When his father died, she went there to support Scott, and with the Shiva, who have the Jewish faith, she was tap dancing and singing and entertaining the women.

& # 39; It was as if she was coming to her husband's father for a few hours. It was just amazing. She received a wonderful applause. & # 39;

The favorite panto – who has been friends with The Carry On star for more than 40 years – added that Barbara has & # 39; fantastic & # 39; and & # 39; good at combat & # 39; looked when the couple met earlier this month for a catch up.
