Born just months after The Great Depression ended, she says she never overate as a child.

And this discipline continued into adulthood.

Speaking to Good Housekeeping, Joan said: “We didn’t have junk food. We were given cod liver oil every day and had to eat our greens.

“It’s sad to me to see older women getting heavy and losing their joie de vivre.”

And speaking to Grazia she says she’s helped keep the wrinkles at bay by avoiding exposure to direct sunlight for decades.

She said: “I used to fry myself in the sun. Ever since I was 18 in the South of France, I’d turn a mahogany colour using a combination of baby oil and iodine.

“But the second I went to Hollywood I met my mentor who told me I’d be a crocodile if I carried on sitting in the sun.”

Joan is married to her fifth husband, Percy Gibson.

The couple married in 2002 and split their time between their central London and St Tropez, France homes.
