Barbara Windsor to star in festive special, Little Crackers!
Barbara, who is of course also famous for her numerous appearances in the Carry On films, will be seen describing how her first bra fitting as a teenager changed her life.
Barbara told The Sun’s TV Biz, “People will be shocked to learn that I wasn’t always the confident, feisty blonde that I am today…
“And how two of my greatest assets were the bane of my life.
“After more than 74 years on this planet, how do you choose one moment that changed your life? There have been so many.”
But Barbara added: “Little Crackers has given me a chance to reveal one of those moments.”
In the short dramatised film, a young Barbara will be played by actress Samantha White, and we’ll see her attending the bra fitting after becoming embarrassed by her developing figure.
Made in Dagenham star Sally Hawkins will play Barbara’s mum, and Barbara herself has a cameo role as the kindly lingerie fitter.
The paper adds, “Other celebrities due to appear in the second series of Little Crackers include comic Harry Hill, actress Sheridan Smith and Loose Women star Sally Lindsay.”
