'She was everybody's Dame'
In an emotional interview with the Sun, Mr Mitchell said he wanted to set the record straight amid rumours in showbiz circles about her deteriorating health.
He said: “Since her 80th birthday last August, a definite continual confusion has set in, so it’s becoming a lot more difficult for us to hide."
