Babs has Queen Vic bust at home

Barbara Windsor has revealed she was given the original Queen Vic bust from the EastEnders pub as her leaving present.

The 73-year-old actress left the soap after playing landlady Peggy Mitchell for 16 years and her dramatic final scenes saw Peggy devastated as her beloved Queen Vic pub burned to the ground.

Barbara revealed on Loose Women on Thursday that when she left the soap she was presented with an enormous memento of her time on the soap.

She said: "There was this great big present all wrapped up in pink. It was the Queen Vic, the original."

It is now on display in a recess off the stairs at her home.

The bust was the murder weapon used to kill Peggy's villainous husband Archie Mitchell. A whodunnit storyline left everyone wondering who the murderer was from a long list of suspects, and the killer finally emerged to be Stacey Branning.

But Barbara revealed it was meant to be Peggy.

She said: "I told them [I wanted to leave] at the wrong time. Unbeknown to me they were getting HD, a new gov'nor and the main thing, I only found out recently, was I was the murderer of Archie. I messed that whole storyline up.

"That's why they kept saying 'can you stay a little bit longer'."
