Jake Wood was thinking of Dame Barbara Windsor "all the way" while running the London Marathon yesterday (28.04.19).

The "EastEnders" star took part in the 26.2-mile spectacle for his former co-star - who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2014 - alongside several of his other colleagues, and the 81-year-old actress" husband Scott Mitchell, for team Barbara's Revolutionaries.

He completed the race in just under six hours, and shared an Instagram clip of himself running over the finish line.

Jake - who plays Max Branning in the BBC One soap - said: "26.2 miles done for Barbara and for Scott. We love you very much.

"To everyone else who ran today, congratulations. All for Dementia Revolution."
