Dame Barbara, who played landlady Peggy Mitchell in EastEnders and starred in the Carry On movies, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2014.
Speaking in an ITV documentary last year, her husband Scott described how the disease - which is the most common form of dementia - had turned their lives upside down since Barbara's diagnosis, saying: "It's not the Barbara that I knew. It's not my wife Barbara any more.
"I'm Barbara's carer, I'm still her friend, you know, I still love the bones off the woman but it's not the Barbara I know, and you [do], that I live with."
Stars flocked to pay tribute to the Dame following her death just before Christmas.
