Fabulously entertaining dinner at Craig’s restaurant with Dame Joan Collins and Percy, her husband of 16 years. ‘This is my longest marriage,’ Joan declared, ‘and my happiest.’
Percy revealed how his mother reacted when he first
‘There was a very long pause, and then she said, “Well Percy, you’ve never bored me!” ’
Joan is the epitome of Hollywood glamour.
‘What’s the secret?’ I asked. ‘Portion control and keeping your face out of the sun.’
‘And to happy marriage?’
Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson was sitting in the booth behind us. ‘Oh, I love her,’ said Joan. ‘She’s so funny.’
I turned round. ‘Hi, Rebel.’
‘I just thought you’d like to know Joan Collins loves you.’ She was thrilled.
As we left, the paparazzi descended. ‘Would Joan make a better queen than Meghan Markle?’ one of them screamed.
‘Of course!’ I replied.
If anything, Joan would almost make a better queen than the Queen.
