EastEnders icon Barbara Windsor continued to earn cash up until her tragic death

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

A firm set up by Babs called Sauce E Ltd to take in cash from her TV roles, ads and royalties 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.

She wed former actor and recruitment consultant Scott in 2000 and he had cared for her throughout her illness.

She was then moved to a London care home last summer.

Scott released a statement to announce her death last year.

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.”
