BARBARA Windsor’s husband Scott Mitchell has inherited the company she used for her TV pay, worth £1million.
Paperwork for Babs’ company Sauce E Ltd, show Scott is now the sole director, following her death in December aged 83.
Latest accounts for 2019 show it had £1million in its coffers, including £920,000 in cash.
Before Barbara’s death, Scott had a 25 percent stake in the company.
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.
Announcing her death last year, he 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.”
Stars from across the worlds of TV and showbiz paid tribute to her at the time, including her EastEnders cast mate Patsy Palmer, who played Bianca Jackson.
