The first trailer for BBC One's Barbara Windsor biopic Babs (hello alliteration) is here.
Announced in September last year, the drama will explore Windsor's lonely London childhood, her difficult relationship with her father and ex-husband Ronnie Knight, as well as her breakthrough role in the Carry On series of films.
Four different actresses star as the national treasure at different stages of her life, ranging from adolescence to her elder years.
Jaime Winstone and Samantha Spiro star as Babs in her twenties and fifties respectively, while two younger actresses take on the role of Windsor in her school and teenage years.
As well as a look at Jaime and Samantha in action, the trailer reveals Zoë Wanamaker as legendary theatre director Joan Littlewood, with whom Babs often clashed.
"If you're not careful, you'll end up playing this sexy little blonde for the rest of your life," says Zoë's character Joan.
Rounding off the cast is Nick Moran (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) as Babs' father John Deeks and Leanne Best (Cold Feet) as her ever-supportive mother Rose.
And look – there's even snogging.
Windsor, who will of course be making a cameo, previously revealed she was "thrilled" with the actresses that will take on her life in the feature-length film.
"Sam Spiro has already proved herself playing me on stage and TV to great acclaim, as well as having her own incredible career," she added.
