DAME Joan Collins admits she doesn’t know how to use a vacuum cleaner — and last ironed in 1957. The actress, 88, even compared today’s complex appliances with the dizzying array of controls in a jet cockpit.
Asked for a new episode of Piers Morgan’s Life Stories if she could iron, Joan replies, “Iron? "No, I wouldn’t know how. I don’t know how to use a Hoover.
I’m not proud of it — it’s like being in front of a 747.” But Dame Joan insists she does wash up at the home in Belgravia, central London, she shares with fifth husband Percy Gibson, 56.
