Barbara Windsor couldnt stop smiling as she made a rare public appearance, five months after revealing she had been diagnosed with Alzheimers disease.
The EastEnders legend was joined by husband Scott Mitchell as she headed to watch the Only Fools And Horses The Musical.
The 81-year-old also popped in to meet the cast afterwards and made sure to take pictures with the stars, branding the whole experience wonderful.
According to the Mirror, she said: The show was wonderful. Its the kind of show I really love and I love Del Boy.
Its the best entertainment Ive had the pleasure of enjoying in ages.
I felt such a warmth from the audience. I would give it five stars!
Well if it gets the Peggy Mitchell seal of approval…!
Barbara – who is most recognised from her role as the Queen Vic landlady – was seen laughing and joking as she spent time with the stage actors, including Tom Bennett (Del Boy), Samantha Seager (Marlene) and Paul Whitehouse (Granddad).
She was diagnosed with Alzheimers in 2014, but only opened up about her illness at the end of last year.
And, in a recent interview, Scott revealed that, while her confusion is getting worse, the BBC stars old self comes in when shes out in public.
During a chat on Good Morning Britain, the 56-year-old said: When we go to the theatre for instance, something happens to Barbara when shes out and its like her old self comes in.
She sees the public and she speaks to everyone and shes in a theatre environment. And you see that part of her which comes alive because its what she knows.
Id be doing a kind of injustice to people going through the same thing if I didnt say that thats not the reality, because its not our reality.
Our reality is for instance, in the last two weeks her confusion is really bad. In the evening, I spend a lot of time explaining where we are. She has a lot of trouble identifying our house. Shell say, “Are we staying here tonight? Have we got clothes here?”
