"I always love seeing my family at Christmas, and it’s particularly fun this year to see my half-sister Natasha, who I don’t see nearly often enough," she added.

Natasha is the daughter of Joan's theatre agent father Joe Collins and his second wife Irene whilst Bill shares Joan's mother Elsa Bessant. Natasha and Bill aren't Joan's only siblings of course. The Time of Their Lives star also was an older sister to bestselling author Jackie Collins, who passed away in 2015.

Speaking to MailOnline Natasha pointed out an unlikely kinship between her profession and that of her superstar sister. "In both, you are on parade in a very public way, the then-40-year-old said. "The show must always go on and you need to project a certain persona. And you must have self-discipline because both are tough businesses where your body is your instrument; you have to keep fit."

In 2009 she admitted that she didn't get much time to see Joan due to her living in Manhattan with husband Percy. The 35-year age gap also meant that Natasha was being posted abroad by the time she was old enough to go out with her sisters.
