Joan Collins: Snakes spook me

Joan Collins

Joan Collins is petrified of snakes as they are "very, very sinister"

The British star has spoken about her biggest fears.

The 79-year-old actress-and-author lists creepy crawlies at the things she is most scared of, which stems from her past.

"It's a toss-up between snakes and spiders," Joan revealed to British magazine Grazia. "Snakes are very, very sinister. My son Sacha had a snake as a pet when he was younger, and he used to coil it around his neck, and I couldn't go near him. I can't even go into the snake house in London Zoo."

Joan has a reputation for being something of a diva, but insists her number one priority is her family not herself. She has been married to her fifth husband Percy Gibson since 2002 and is everything she could wish for in a partner. Her biggest regret, however, is that her family are spread around the world.

"[I value] loyalty, trust and unconditional love, which I have from Percy, and he has from me," she admitted. "I wish all of my children and grandchildren lived in the same city as me. But that would be very difficult because I travel between America and Europe all the time. I'm always happy when we are together."
