Barbara brings Jubilee cheer to East End street party

Sunday June 3, 2012

Actress Barbara Windsor has brought a little East End cheer to a west London Diamond Jubilee street party.

She joined more than 100 revellers in Ealing for a Big Jubilee Lunch with a royal and 1950s fancy dress theme.

Accompanied by a live band, Babs led neighbours from Julien, York and Wellington Roads in a rousing version of the song Maybe It's Because I'm A Londoner.

Speaking afterwards, she said it took her back to the day of the Queen's Coronation, when the actress was 15 years old.

"Today took me back years in my life - all that red, white and blue. It was marvellous. I was 15 when the Queen came to the throne and I remember it vividly.

"Today felt just like that, it took me back and my heart skipped a beat."
