Veteran actress Joan Collins is keen to return to the small screen - despite being previously snubbed by Desperate Housewives bosses. The 74-year-old star is begging producers of the hit show to for a part and claims she will even go under the surgeon's knife if it means accepting a role. She says, "Desperate Housewives is one of the best things ever to hit television. I'd jump at a television series. "And, if the lighting cameraman said to me, 'Joan, I've tried everything, I simply can't make you look good anymore,' maybe that's the time I'd consider a little cosmetic help." Collins missed out on the part of playing Teri Hatcher's mother to fellow actress Lesley Ann Warren in 2005.
