Babs feels 'posh'

Barbara Windsor says she's 'finally posh' after receiving the freedom of the City of London.

The ex-Eastenders actress was awarded the honour at London's Guildhall a day before her 73rd birthday.

The actress filmed her final scenes as Albert Square's Peggy Mitchell last month.

The honour, which dates back to the 13th century, historically allowed the recipient a raft of bizarre freedoms - including the right to a free drink in all pubs, to drive sheep over London Bridge and to carry a sword.

Barbara said, "This is be a wonderful moment; the freedom to the best city in the world, and the one I was born in and love and adore"
