Carry On Barbara!

Lots of bits and pieces in the press about Barbara Windsor over the past couple of days, so let's have a look.

First up, Barbara reunited with Carry On co-stars Jim Dale and Fenella Fielding for Jim's one man show, Just Jim Dale. It was the first time Barbara had seen Jim since they made Carry On Again Doctor back in 1969. To commemorate the occasion, Jim and Barbara recreated the famous scene from that film, complete with white doctors coat and bright red love hearts! You can read more about that here.

Next up, Barbara has been quoted talking about plans for a television biopic about her colourful life and career. According to the Daily Mirror Barbara has been in talks with the BBC about a drama covering the major events of her life. No news on who might play Babs if this goes ahead, although she is apparently "gutted" Sheridan Smith has already played Cilla Black. I have absolutely no idea who might play Barbara, any suggestions?

Finally, Barbara has been talking to the Evening Standard about her preparations for taking part in Cancer Research UK's 5k Race For Life. Barbara is running the 5k in London's Regent's Park later today. Well done to her I say!
