Dame Joan Collins has revealed she used to have an obsession with camels and used to collect items with the mammals on them.
Dame Joan Collins used to own a ''huge collection'' of camel memorabilia.
The 'Time of Their Lives' actress developed an obsession with the mammals not long after she first moved to Hollywood and had begun collecting palm tree pictures, which also featured the he creatures.
She said: ''The camel. I think it started when I first came to Hollywood aged 20 and I became enamoured of palm trees. I started collecting pictures of palm trees and a lot of them had camels in them. I thought, 'That's a really different animal', and I started collecting camels in brass, silver, ceramics and paintings. I've got rid of it now, but I had a huge collection. I like dromedaries too.''
The 83-year-old actress is feeling very thankful that the people who used to live next door to her and husband Percy Gibson have now moved away because she couldn't bear the smells of their household.
Asked the worst smell in the world, she said: ''It used to be my next-door neighbours, but luckily they've moved. It was the smell of their cooking, and they left their garbage out.''
And when she is at home, Joan loves to make spaghetti bolognaise for her family.
She told Empire magazine: ''[My signature dish is] spaghetti Bolognese. I learnt to make it when I was making 'Esther And The King' in Rome. It's my go-to dish when I have my children and grandchildren over, and it's fabulous. You simmer it for a very long time, with plenty of onion, tomatoes and olive oil.''
And the glamorous star also likes to design her own clothes.
She revealed: ''I design clothes. I would say I design a good 50 per cent of my clothes.''
