Dame Joan Collins to be interviewed by Louis Theroux

The former ‘Dynasty’ star, 90, will sit down for a chat with the 53-year-old broadcaster to open up on her career - which has spanned nearly eight decades - as well as her life in her homes in London and St Tropez for his BBC Two series, ‘Louis Theroux Interviews’.

A telly insider told The Sun newspaper's TVBiz column: “Convincing Dame Joan to sign up was no mean feat. It’s understood she didn’t want a fuss making of the fact she’s recently turned 90.

“But there’s no doubt that’s partly a factor in wanting to do the interview."

It is believe that Joan - who is married to her fifth husband Percy Gibson, 58, - was finally convinced by Louis’s “intimate” sit-down with Dame Judi Dench in her home.

The source continued: “In the end, Dame Joan was partly convinced by the fact Louis interviewed fellow acting Dame, Judi Dench, last year.

“That also saw him go inside her home, which only led to a more intimate chat and great viewing. Producers will be hoping to recreate that vibe.”

The ‘Land of the Pharaohs’ star - who has son artist Alexander, 57, and Tara, 59, with her late ex Anthony Newley and daughter Katyana, 51, with her ex the late Ron Kass - recently complained that showbiz parties had become “dull” as everyone feared being “cancelled”.

Joan - who was also married to Peter Holm, 76, and the late Maxwell Reed - told Best magazine: “The parties I go to now are kind of...dull.

“They are red carpet things in which everybody does behave. If you don’t behave now you are going to get cancelled.”

And Louis - who has also grilled celebs like Katherine Ryan, 40, Stormzy, 29, and Rita Ora, 32 - has reflected on “how much an of an outsider” he used to feel in his first forays into television in the 90s and 00s.

He told Radio Times magazine: “But that’s who I am, really. I would like to think that I’m still the same person, and from time to time I get little glimpses of remembering how insecure and how much of an outsider I used to feel when I was in my early and mid-20s.”
