Joan: ‘Never thought I’d be a Dame!’
SCREEN legend Joan Collins has spoken of her amazement at being made a Dame. After receiving the accolade from the Prince of Wales for services to charity, Dame Joan said all she wanted to be at the start of her career was just a ‘jobbing actress”. The star is famed for her roles in a string of sexy films like the The Stud and The Bitch and for more recent parts in the ITV comedy Ben idorm and the soap The Royals. The 81-year-old (above) said: ”Not in a billion years did I think I would be made a Dame, it never even crossed my mind. It wasn’t anything I ever aspired to, I just wanted to be jobbing actress, a working actor and somebody who could still perform.’ Dame Joan has been a regular on stage and screen for more than half a century, but is probably best known for her portrayal of the bitchy Alexis in U.S. soap Dynasty.

Robin Allen QC. representing Mr Lee. said the baker’s objection on religious grounds was not lawful. adding: “A postman taking a letter to the door or a printer carrying out a printing job – nobody would say that involved promoting or support.
