Dean Gaffney, DAME Barbara’s EastEnders co-star, showed up to pay tribute to her but was turned down.
The Covid restrictions meant only 30 mourners were allowed to attend the service, leaving Gaffney, 42, in the cold.
The actor, who played hapless Robbie Fowler in the soap opera, arrived in a dark suit, brown tie, and face mask, which was mandatory for all participants.
Fans who waited outside said there would have been hundreds inside and thousands on the streets had there not been a lockdown.
Gaffney played Robbie road sweeper from 1993 before being sacked after 10 years.
Robbie Fowler was a road sweeper and his dog Wellard was considered as famous as the character.
