Those pulling on their running shoes are Adam Woodyatt, Jake Wood, Emma Barton, Natalie Cassidy, Kellie Shirley, Tanya Franks, Jamie Borthwick and Jane Slaughter, who all forged firm friendships with Barbara during their time on EastEnders. United in support of the star, the group have joined the Dementia Revolution campaign in a bid to raise much-needed awareness of dementia as well as funds to power ground-breaking research at the UK Dementia Research Institute.

You can find out more about their personal motivations for joining the Dementia Revolution by watching the short films below, or to make a donation towards Barbara’s Revolutionaries’ £100,000 target, please visit the team’s fundraising page.
