'Eating as much as possible' Dame Joan Collins admits she gained half a stone in isolation

Joan Collins, 88, has spoken up about her feelings during the first Covid-19 lockdown. The actress said she felt there was “nothing to do” as she spoke about her weight gain.

Joan spent the first few months of the international lockdown in London, before she moved to France with husband Percy Gibson after travel bans were eased.

She said she became frustrated with the intense restrictions, and decided to move to her home in the South of France instead.

Speaking to the Daily Mail today, the celebrity said: “I found London difficult because I felt like I was in jail, not knowing when I was going to get out.”

She admitted that at first, she spent a “ridiculous” amount of time watching TV and added that she gained weight as a result of excessive eating and sitting down.

But the actress does get angry, as revealed recently when talking about the phenomenon of Cancel Culture.
