The actress, who is battling with Alzheimer's, ended the video by blowing her friend, who tied the knot with Gary in late September, a sweet kiss. 

Phil couldn't contain his emotion as he captioned the clip:  'Our Incredible Beautiful friend Dame Barbara Windsor. Was our matron of honour at our civil partnership. When we said we was changing it to a marriage you can imagine our happiness when Scott sent us this, it meant so much. 

'And for Scott to allow us to share this with you all also means a lot to. Barbara has been in our lives for the past 20 odd years and means as much to us now as she’s always has. 

'We still laugh & joke about the past and talk about what she’s going through like so many others! Dementia affects so many life’s in so many different ways.
