Babs will tell the heart-warming story of Dame Barbara Windsor, the Cockney kid with a dazzling smile and talent to match.
Preparing to perform in the theatre one cold evening in 1993, Babs takes us on a journey of all the people and events that have shaped her life and career: taking us through 50 years from 1943 to 1993, she contemplates her lonely childhood and WWII evacuation, her complicated relationship with her father, her doomed marriage to Ronnie Knight, capturing the attention of Joan Littlewood and becoming the blonde bombshell in the Carry On films.

The finely-woven script merges theatre and film; the story unfolds, full of heart and heartbreak - with a touch of sauciness thrown in.

Babs airs on BBC One on Sunday 7 May at 8pm

Stars Dame Barbara Windsor, Samantha Spiro, Jaime Winstone, Nick Moran and Zoe Wanamaker.


Just a one-off, so will definitely give this a watch!

It met Babs expectations.

Should be worth a watch this.

This wasn't the most exciting of shows but it was cute and interesting to see more about Barbara.

One scene was odd when the old Barbara was reflecting on her life and then appeared as Jaime Winstone as Young Babs was clutching her tummy..

Surprised they mentioned piss 5 times before 9pm.

The narrative for this was very odd just seemed very strange in parts.
