Scott admitted to the newspaper that his wife's disease had become more hard to hide since she turned 80 previous year.
The TV stalwart's condition has been slowly deteriorating since her last birthday, but her husband, Scott Mitchell, 55, revealed that she was originally diagnosed in 2014 after he and others first noticed signs of her forgetfulness in 2009.
He said: "Since her 80th birthday last August, a definite continual confusion has set in, so it's becoming a lot more hard for us to hide".
'Rather than me living in fear she might get confused or upset, they'll know that if her behaviour seems unusual, it's due to Alzheimer's and accept it for what it is, ' he added.
Dame Barbara also appeared in sitcoms including Dad's Army and One Foot In The Grave and the kids' series Worzel Gummidge before securing the role of pub landlady Peggy Mitchell in EastEnders in 1994.
Struggling to contain his emotions, Scott added: "When the doctor told us, she began crying then held it back, stretched her hand out to me and mouthed, I'm so sorry'".
Two months earlier, Barbara was awarded a Damehood for her services to showbusiness and charity after an acting career that has spanned nearly 60 years.
Doctors carried out a brain scan and mental agility tests, before diagnosing her with the progressive disease, which can affect multiple brain functions including memory.
He added: "I can't protect her any longer. I love both Barbara and Scott very much", he said.
"Alzheimer's is the most common disease behind dementia, accounting for around two thirds of cases of the condition in older people", he said. "We're still going out for walks or dinner with friends and we still laugh together a lot".
"But as soon as we leave the house, I live in constant terror that she's going to say something, or suddenly have a panic attack, or get photographed when she's not looking right". "Love this woman! Ruth and I wish the National Treasure that is Dame Barbara Windsor the very best after her Alzheimer's diagnosis", he said. She & Scott going public about it like this is a typically gutsy decision by one of the gutsiest ladies I know.
