Cruel trolls have accused Dame Barbara Windsor’s husband of cashing in on his wife’s dementia.
Internet sickos made Scott Mitchell a target after he revealed how he struggles to deal with the soap star’s condition.
Devastated Scott said: “I don’t really look at social media, but I’ve seen comments along the lines of, ‘He’s enjoying the limelight’ and that really hurts.”
The 56-year-old has also told how Barbara, who played Peggy Mitchell in EastEnders, now asks him to get in touch with her late mother.
He said: “She’ll often ask me if I’ve ever lived in our house before – we’ve lived together for 26 years. She’ll ask me if I can get in touch with her mum, because she’d love to speak to her.

“This illness is slowly stripping away the love of my life, right in front of me.
“Doing what I do for Alzheimer’s awareness is the only way I feel I can fight back. It’s my way of going ‘Sod you!’ to this horrendous disease.”
Scott realised something was wrong with his 82-year-old wife when she kept repeating herself.
He said of one encounter with a fan: “I remember one kind lady looking at me and nodding with a very gentle smile, as if to say she knew, she’d been through it all with a loved one. I’ll never forget that.”
