As an elegant Joan Collins reminisces about her life, it’s hard for the actress not to drop names, given the company she’s kept.

She’s in good form here, telling stories about early roles alongside the likes of Bette Davis, and recalling entertaining Peter Sellers, Dudley Moore and Julie Andrews at the home she shared with second husband Anthony Newley.

Perhaps the most interesting memory is of Barbra Streisand serenading Newley at a party – Joan later found out that, as she suspected at the time, the two had had an affair.

At 84, Joan is sharp as a tack, funny and candid, saying that for all the glamour, her life has included ‘a huge amount of heartbreak and heartache’.
