Barbara Windsor’s Relationship History with Husband
Windsor and her husband Mitchell met when they were fifty-five and thirty years old, respectively, through mutual acquaintances. At the time she started dating Mitchell, Windsor was still married to her second husband, Stephen Hollings. “We were both aware of the churning of strong emotions.” “I had a hunch it was serious when I did anything out of character,” the late actress was quoted as saying. Windsor was the one who sparked their relationship by asking Mitchell out on a date.
Her second husband mocked her for marrying a man twenty-five years her junior after learning of her affair. In the year 2000, the couple married in a small covert ceremony at a Dorchester hotel in front of three witnesses. Windsor had no children from any of her prior marriages, thus her third husband is her sole survivor.
