Meanwhile, back in March, Scott appeared on Loose Women, where he said she calls her bad moments with the disease “blackout periods”.
He stated: “She’ll call them her blackouts. She’ll hold her head and say, ‘I’ve got one of those blackouts, where are we?’
“Any lover, my heart goes out to you, you are powerless.”
Barbara wed Scott – a former actor and recruitment consultant – in April 2000, following previous marriages to Ronnie Knight and chef Stephen Hollings.
