Joan Collins (actress) forced to confirm she's not Joan Collins (arrested Dublin politician)

The very idea!

ACTRESS JOAN COLLINS has been forced to take to Twitter to confirm that she was NOT arrested at a protest in Dublin yesterday.

No, no. It was United Left Alliance TD Joan Collins who was arrested on Parnell Road and later released. She claimed afterwards that she was “simply standing on the footpath”.

Actress Collins was nowhere near Parnell Road though, although she ended up getting quizzed by people confusing her with TD Collins.

To reiterate…

This is Joan Collins, United Left Alliance TD:

This is actress Joan Collins, for whom water charges are probably not a high priority.

Glad we’ve cleared that up.


TD Collins has replied to Actress Collins. So much shade.


A u-turn !
