Written by Tony Jordan, this is the heart-warming story of Dame Barbara Windsor, the Cockney kid with a dazzling smile and talent to match who went on to become a British icon. Spanning 50 years, from 1943 to 1993, this drama introduces the people and the events that shaped Babs's life and career. It's a cold evening at the theatre in 1993 and while Babs gets ready to perform on stage, she contemplates her lonely childhood, her complicated relationship with her father, her doomed marriages, capturing the attention of theatre director Joan Littlewood and becoming the blonde bombshell in the Carry On films.
