Scott Mitchell & Barbara Windsor
Scott Mitchell hit the limelight after getting hitched to actress Barbara Windsor. Scott married Barbara in 2000, after meeting the star in 1992 when she was 55 and he was 28.
He is the son of one of the actress’s friends and a former actor and recruitment consultant. He was her third husband. Scott spoke about how people suspected he was a gold digger when they first got together: “Little did they know that after the breakdown of Bar’s second marriage, she was £1million in debt and we were talking about her coming to live in my two-bed flat.” To clear the bills, Barbara toured the country with a one-woman music hall show.
The couple have been pictured together multiple times, including enjoying some sun in the Caribbean.

Windsor was married three times, and had no children. Her first husband was small-time gangster Ronnie Knight 1964to 1985, who was an associate of the notorious Kray twins, and chef Stephen Hollings from 1986 to 1995.
Before her marriage to Ronnie Knight, she had a one-night stand with East End criminal Reggie Kray, and a longer affair with his older brother Charlie Kray.
