DAME Barbara Windsor has become a star after her secret lover was exposed, Ronnie & Reggie Kray’s attorney has announced.

Rising star Barbara was once in a relationship with a married nightclub owner and gangster when he was arrested.

She tried to keep the relationship under wraps, fearing his fame might ruin her fledgling film career.

But despite efforts to keep her relationship out of the press, Ronnie ended up having to go to court — and the cat was taken out of the bag.

Nemone explained on The Secrets of The Krays: “Barbara’s husband was arrested. He was a gang boss. So I went to the Old Bailey to ask for bail.

“It’s normal – I talk about his address, strong community ties, philanthropic activities. And that he is married to a famous actress.”

Nemone said that the press was desperate to find out who the actress was.

“It can’t be hidden anymore,” said Nemone.

“Barbara’s name is in the frame. She is absolutely furious, Barbara is very angry with me.

“She came up to me outside the courthouse and said ‘you’re a little girl, I’m not going to make a pound of sugar now you’ve got the cat out of your pocket’.

“But the reality is quite the opposite. The press fell in love with her.

“They thought she was a cheeky little sparrow standing by her man.”

Barbara married Ronnie in 1964, before divorcing nearly 20 years later.

She became a favorite star – affectionately known as “Babs”.

After playing a buxom blonde in hilarious comedies, she later became a television favorite as Peggy Mitchell in the hit BBC series EastEnders.

The new documentary Secrets Of The Krays, which airs on Tuesday night, reveals how notorious London gangsters Ronnie and Reggie threatened to kill Barbara.

Barbara was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2014 and went public in 2018.

The 4ft 10in star passed away “peacefully” at a care home in London with third husband Scott Mitchell at her side in December 2020.
