The famous bikini worn by the late Dame Barbara Windsor in Carry On Camping is going up for auction.
She sported the outfit in an iconic scene from the 1969 comedy that saw the top fly off during the middle of an exercise class.
The chartreuse cotton towelling bikini is being sold by Kerry Taylor Auctions and is estimated to fetch between £800 and £1,200.
Watch: Dame Barbara Windsor was remembered as a ‘triple threat’ at her funeral
Dame Barbara died in December aged 83 following a battle with Alzheimers, which she was diagnosed with in 2014.
An image from the scene was included in the order of service for her funeral alongside her quote: “That picture will follow me to the end.”
According to the auction house the Carry On Camping wardrobe department would have commissioned more than one bikini to be made, but this is the only example known to have survived after it was rescued from a bin during a costumier’s stock clearance decades ago.
Remnants of the fishing line used to pull the bikini away from Dame Barbara can still be seen stitched to the front of the top, it added.
The proceeds from the sale are being donated by the seller to Alzheimer’s Society, a charity supported by the late star and her husband Scott Mitchell.
Kate Lee, the charity’s chief executive, said: “Dame Barbara Windsor inspired so many when she spoke out about her dementia diagnosis and we are so incredibly grateful to have had her and her husband Scott’s unwavering support – what they achieved for people with dementia has been truly awe-inspiring.
“This bikini is an iconic item from an iconic lady.”
She added: “It is fantastic that such an iconic item will continue Dame Barbara’s legacy to support people affected by dementia, and we are touched by the generosity of the vendor.”
Dame Barbara featured in several other films in the Carry On series, including Carry On Spying, Carry On Matron and Carry On Dick.
The bikini will be sold on 15 June.
