EastEnders legend fuming as ‘private’ Barbara Windsor chat exposed on Loose Women

EastEnders legend Natalie Cassidy was gobsmacked when Loose Women’s Charlene White spilled the beans on her “private” chat live on telly.

Natalie rocked up on the ITV show as a guest panelist and let slip some juicy goss about the pearls of wisdom she’d received from Albert Square legends like Dame Barbara Windsor and June Brown. In a heartfelt confession, Natalie shared: “Barbara, on a professional level, really helped me.”

“She was very, very straight talking. She helped me go, ‘You need to be on time, you need to be polite to people, you need to be kind. You need to do your homework and know your lines and just be very grateful for the job’. I’ve taken that on board.”


The crowd went wild with applause, but Charlene didn’t miss a beat, chiming in: “She could be tough with you without saying a word. Like, if you’d had a night out when you were working the next day?” leaving Natalie to snap back: “Thank you for that! It was a private conversation in the green room!”

But Natalie took it on the chin and chuckled away before dishing the dirt on the ticking off she copped from Barbara. She reminisced: “I remember going out with H from Steps one night – it was early 2000s, maybe very late 90s. I came into work and it was in the days when EastEnders stars were on the front of papers, it was a big thing back then.”, reports the Mirror.Natalie Cassidy wants to be the next Dame Barbara Windsor and 'help new stars with advice'

“I remember walking in and me and H from Steps were on the front of The Sun. I remember walking past and seeing Barbara with a paper. She was like, ‘Morning! ‘ I was like, ‘I have been out but I am on time! ‘ but I don’t think I ever did it again! I never went out on a school night ever again.”

Charlene added: “It’s keeping you in line without saying a word! ” as Natalie admitted Barbara was “amazing”. June Brown, on the other hand, focused on giving Natalie acting advice.

“Hers was more about the craft and the acting. She’d always say, ‘darling, that sounds so boring’. She’d say ‘every line is a song. Think about how you say things, don’t be too monotone, and listening is better than reacting.’ I’m so grateful for them.”

Charlene then queried: “I know you don’t like to think of yourself as a soap legend but you absolutely are an EastEnders legend. So in your role, do you give the younger members of the crew nuggets of advice? “.

Natalie replied: “They’re so good. They’re better than we were. They’re not out drinking all night, they’re meditating or talking about their sleep. I just tell them what I learned be kind to people, learn people’s names, know the crew.”
