Former 'EastEnders' actress Barbara Windsor has admitted her engagement ring from husband Scott Mitchell was her best-ever Christmas present
Barbara Windsor's best-ever Christmas present was her engagement ring.
The former 'EastEnders' actress - who has been married to Scott Mitchell for 10 years - revealed she was particularly thrilled when her partner proposed to her, as her gifts are not usually a surprise.
She eplained: "My best present was my engagement ring, which was lovely. Usually though, we go to Selfridges and shop together.
"My husband always gets me Guerlain Shalimar perfume, because I've used it since I was on Broadway. I'm known as Miss Shalimar."
This year, Barbara and Scott will spend Christmas with his parents, which they do most years, as one attempt to jet off to a beach for the festive season was disastrous.
Barbara said: "We usually got to my in-laws - my mother-in-law is a wonderful cook. We have a traditional dinner and lots of chocolate We waddle out of there!
"We went away once but I was at everyone's beck and call, so now we do it at home."
