EastEnders character and much-loved landlady of the Queen Vic pub Peggy Mitchell (Dame Barbara Windsor) lives on as she begins trending after Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer was kicked out of a pub in Bath.
Rod Humphris, who runs The Raven pub in Bath, told the politician to get out of his pub Peggy Mitchell style during a heated row over lockdown restrictions.
Mr Humphris said he was a lifelong Labour voter and had to be held back by security guards as he told Sir Keir he wasn’t welcome.
The landlord told reporters that he was angry at Sir Keir for failing to ask if lockdown was functioning.
The Labour leader was in Bath to support the West of England mayoral candidate Dan Norris ahead of the elections.
In the video that’s currently going viral, Rod Humpris is being restrained by a security guard and channels his inner Peggy Mitchell as he tells the politician ‘get out of my pub!’.
Plenty of Twitter users have commented on the landlord quoting the EastEnders legend, including Good Morning Britain’s Susanna Reid who said: ‘All a bit Peggy Mitchell #awks’.
Other Twitter users have said how the owner of the pub ‘went full Peggy Mitchell’ and ‘shame I’m not at work today. Would have loved to have walked 5mins to see Peggy Mitchell.’
