The bikini top worn by Dame Barbara in the 1969 film Carry On Camping was auctioned for $ 9,500. In the famous moment where her top flies away in the middle of a physical education lesson, the former actress wore the bathing suit.
Proceeds from the sale will be donated to a good cause.
The revenues from the sale of the clothing item, which was salvaged from the garbage bins a long time ago, will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Society by the seller. At the age of 83, the actress died of Alzheimer’s disease in December. The order of service for her funeral contained an image from the moment in Carry On Camping, along with her quote: “That picture will follow me to the end of the earth.”
“We have received so much interest in this bikini, from diehard fans of the Carry On flicks to individuals who simply love Barbara Windsor,” said auctioneer Kerry Taylor. She was known for her down-to-earth demeanour, amazing sense of humour, and exceptional acting abilities throughout her long career.
