EastEnders legend Barbara Windsor continued to earn cash right up until tragic death

Barbara Windsor was continuing to earn cash right up to her tragic death, new documents have revealed.

Sauce E Ltd, a company Babs set up to collect royalties and TV roles, is still trading.

Husband Scott Mitchell is now in sole charge of the outfit and accounts sent to Companies House this week reveal cash reserves of £892,401.

And the paperwork shows that more than £75,000 of income was owed the firm for the last two trading years – including the 12 months to December 2020.

Before Barbara‘s death, Scott had a 25% stake in the company.

A report attached to the accounts said the firm was still trading as a going concern.

The assets were largely built up from her time as Peggy Mitchell in EastEnders – a role which she took on in 1994, but bowed out from in 2016.

The Carry On legend had been £1million in debt before landing the role in Albert Square.

But the screen icon was reportedly worth £10million when she passed away, six years after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

Scott, a former actor and consultant in recruitment, was her husband and had taken care of her during her illness.

After her death, she was moved to a London home for the elderly.

Scott issued a statement last year to announce her passing.

In the sad statement, Scott said: “It is with deep sadness that I can confirm that my darling wife Barbara passed away at 8.35pm on Thursday 10 December at a London care home.

“Her passing was from Alzheimer’s/dementia and Barbara eventually died peacefully and I spent the last seven days by her side.”
