Dame Barbara Windsor has made a rare public appearance as she battles with Alzheimer's disease.

The 82-year-old EastEnders actress filmed a video wishing good luck to her friend Chris Evans, who is running a marathon in Amsterdam.

"Hello darlings, Barbara Windsor here", she said.

"Thank you all for donating so much money to Dementia Revolution. Your generosity will support vital research that will give hope to people living with the condition.

"Dementia is the biggest health threat facing society. There are nearly one million people living with the condition in the UK and another person is diagnosed every three minutes."

Barbara was diagnosed with the degenerative condition in 2014.

She continued: "As you run through the streets of Amsterdam remember, you're leading the charge towards finding the cure for dementia.
