Derren said: “She has a scene with Johnny Vegas and I think it might be the funniest scene we have ever had in the show.”
“But we didn’t know if you weren’t going to turn up, because you’re Joan Collins. She said: ‘Oh Derren , I’m just an actress.’

“I can’t say too much, it’s Johnny Vegas and Elsie Kelly who plays his mum Noreen in the show. It is so funny. I can’t wait.”
Only Fools And Horses star John Challis, is also to take a role in the seventh series of the ITV comedy series along with TV host and former EastEnders star Nadia Sawalha.
