The former EastEnders star has died aged 83 after his battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
Scott made his first public appearance since his death tonight at Good Morning Britain’s 1 Million Minutes Awards.
As he presented an award named in Barbara’s honor to palliative caregiver Nassrat Bi, Scott said he still couldn’t believe Barbara was gone.
He said, “I can’t believe it only a week ago she was still here and now she isn’t.”
“There is the circle of life. I don’t think I can believe it yet to be honest with you.
“I want to tell you another thing about your story, which gave me the courage today to make this video for you.
“That’s when I was asked the question, I said I thought I was going to be too emotional, too big to be able to do it.” ”
During the appearance, he also spoke about Barbara’s last days.
Nassrat works with dying people and supports their loved ones, and Scott said Barbara’s caregivers are invaluable.
He explained, “I know what it takes now to sit next to someone at the end of their life and just have comforting and reassuring words from caregivers.
“To see your loved one being comforted and cared for and the relief that brings you and the support of the family, you will never know what it means for your loved ones to be a part of this process and to be included and cared for as well. than the person who comes to the end of his life with the disease. ”
Before she died, Barbara lived in a retirement home.
Scott announced in 2018 that Barbara had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and passed away last week.
