💐🎂🎊💝 Happy Birthday Babs! 💝🎊🎂💐
Wishing acting diamond, the legendary Barbara Windsor, a wonderful 💎83rd💎Birthday today; once I saw a clip of a very early acting role of hers. She was in a small shop with a friend and, at the age of 17, she looked like a proper little girl, and you'd have been forgiven for thinking she was an 11-year-old, with bags more growing to do.
Have a much-deserved magical Birthday, Barbara!

Bubbly Babs may be only 4ft10, but she's pure dynamite! I wish her all the very best! XXX
🌻 - The closest I can come to her bun!

Brave Barbara, speaking out about her Alzheimer's. Life can be so unfair. She's contributed so much to the entertainment industry and people's happiness. What a wonderful little powerhouse of a lady. I wish her well and send her all the love in the World. 4ft10 of sheer magic!

Could she have been 4ft 11 peak?
It's possible she might have been over 4ft 10 flat

So sorry to hear that this superb entertainer is suffering from dementia. She has led such an interesting life and been acting since she was, I believe, 17, and looking like a proper little girl!
My love, prayers and thoughts are with her.

Rob would she be 5'1ish in shoes like this?
Yes, it would be very likely she's in that zone with them.

Yes no more than 4 ft 10. A little Blackpool showgirl esque in her prime, a bit tacky, but quite saucy.

I have just been watching an old Christmas edition of 'Family Fortunes' and Barbara was in it dressed as a fairy! She made the top two, winning prizes for sick children.
Needless to say, she was the smallest of all the celebrity contestants, but she always seems to do well in programmes like this, I've noticed!
She's not lacking in brainpower - just inches!

Some of the main actors in the Carry On films must have been on the shorter side as she does'nt look teeny tiny next to them, short obviously but they only look around 5ft 7 or 8
Arch Stanton said on 30/Oct/16
@Rob, can you add the Carry On tag?
Sandy Cowell said on 28/Oct/16
@ littlesue - You make me feel tall! I'm a full 3 inched more than you and Barbara.
Well, let's talk about the delightful Ms Windsor! Famous for being a petite blonde sex bomb, I feel she did a lot for the shorter woman! I adore her funny little characters in the 'Carry Ons'. How can anyone possibly not?
I was truly surprised and impressed when she joined the cast of EastEnders. It was hard to perceive that we were watching the same actress. She was a knock-out and it was so sad to see her leave the soap earlier this year, especially in the way she was written out, but she played the part of a proud lady.
She still looks terrific too! It would be grand to see her on TV again soon. I know she's partial to appearing in quizzes, but anything would be nice!

She says 4ft 10 in the paper yesterday, says she wants an extra couple of inches for Xmas, says she never minded being short but would have liked to have reached 5ft. Me being the same height I can understand that, I never minded being a shortarse but would have settled for 5ft.

Ronnie was the taller of the two 5ft 7.5in and Reggie 5ft 7in.
BigN said on 25/Sep/14
Spot on Rob.
Speaking of her could you estimate the heights of Ronnie and Reggie Kray? She knew them back in the day, and I can't seem to pin them.
littlesue said on 14/Sep/14
Well she in her 70's now so bound to have lost a bit so maybe 4ft 10 or under now.
Chaz said on 13/Sep/14
she as allways said 4'10.5''
littlesue said on 13/Sep/14
Cheers Rob for adding her, she was always shown as either 4ft 11 or 4ft 10 1/2 in her younger days, like myself they probably rounded her up to 4ft 11. Due to age about 4ft 10 now, I shall gauge myself on her as she similar height and build to myself.
Arch Stanton said on 13/Sep/14
I think she claimed 4'10 and a half back in the 90s, I read it in OK magazine I think.
