She spent the early months of the coronavirus pandemic in London but as soon as international travel was permitted, she relocated to France with her husband Percy Gibson because she felt so frustrated.

She said: ‘I was in London for most of the time. But after the three-month period from March 2020, I went to the south of France, as I have a house there.
‘I found London difficult because I felt like I was in jail, not knowing when I was going to get out.’
Joan spent a ‘ridiculous’ amount of time watching TV and admitted she gained weight because there was nothing to do but eat and drink.
She said: ‘Of course I was [in tracksuits] weren’t we all? I gained about half a stone. I was eating as much as possible because aside from drinking bottles of wine and polishing off chocolates – what else was there to do?
‘I also watched endless television – it was ridiculous. I watched nine hours one day.
‘I would watch the morning programmes and read all the papers, so that would take me up to lunchtime.’
