Despite being known for her voluminous raven hair, Dame Joan Collins is not one to shy away from lighter shades.

Now the actress has re-channeled her inner Marilyn Monroe for her latest role – taking on a bombshell blonde look.

Photos from the film set of Tomorrow Morning show Dame Joan who looks as timeless as ever in a black top, a white blazer and golden curly hair.

It’s not the first time the star has changed her style for a role.

In 1980 she wore a cropped blonde wig for an episode of Tales of the Unexpected and also on the American show Blondes vs Brunettes in 1984.

Dame Joan, who turned 88 last weekend, is the latest addition to the 2006 film version of the West End musical.

It comes after Joan flew to Mallorca on Tuesday and looked typically glamorous when she left the airport in Palma.

Joan looked stylish in a pale pink blazer and black cowboy hat when she arrived on the Spanish island with her husband Percy Gibson.

Under the blazer, Joan wore a low-cut black top and finished the look with dark pants, chunky white sandals and of course a face mask.

She was wearing huge sunglasses on her face and it looked like they had received some flowers upon arrival as a staff member was carrying a bouquet in their waiting car.

Spain is currently on the amber list of countries in the UK and traveling there for holidays is not recommended.

It is not known why she traveled to the Spanish island, but last year she worked on a TV project in Madrid, where her husband joined her.

Which ‘amber-colored list’ of European countries can the British visit without having to go to quarantine?

All of these European countries are on the UK’s amber list, which means that passengers returning to the UK must stay at home for 10 days and have a PCR test on days two and eight – as well as a lateral flow test for the return flight. They can also pay for ‘Test to Release’ on day five to end self-isolation early.

But that’s not a deterrent to people flying to Spain today – with all of the orange-listed countries below granting entry to UK citizens with no quarantine requirement:

Albania

Armenia

Bulgaria

Croatia

Cyprus

Estonia

Greece

Italy

Kosovo

Malta

Moldavia

Montenegro

North Macedonia

San Marino

Serbia

Slovenia

Spain

Ukraine

A Dame Joan representative has been contacted by MailOnline for a comment.

The movie legend spent time in the Spanish capital filming scenes for the medieval series Glow and Darkness, in which she played Queen Adelaide of Savoy.

If you are traveling to an amber-listed country, upon return to the UK, you will be required to quarantine at home for a period of 10 days and take a pre-departure test, plus a PCR test on day two and day eight.

You can also pay for an additional test released on day five to end self-isolation early.

The government can check you on the spot to see if you isolate when you return home and you can be fined £ 10,000 for not quarantining.

Vacationers visiting countries with an amber-colored list also run the risk of voiding their travel insurance policy amid confusion over government advice, experts warn.

Spain started accepting British tourists without a negative Covid test starting Monday, but their travel coverage is likely to be void if they visit the country, they said.

It means that families with bills of thousands of pounds can be hit if they fall ill or have an accident abroad. The risk also applies to the United States, Italy and most of Greece.

Policy validity is determined by State Department travel advice and not by the “traffic light system” introduced a week ago, said Malcolm Tarling of the Association of British Insurers.

Despite Spain welcoming tourists from the UK, the State Department warns against ‘anything but essential travel’ to the country, except to the Canary Islands.

International travel appears to be attracting across Europe, with Airbnb bookings across the continent just four percent below its 2019 level, according to vacation market monitors AirDNA.

Last week, the UK’s traffic light policy was messed up, with ministers accused of sowing ‘mass confusion’.

On Tuesday, the system’s second day, Environment Minister George Eustice suggested that traveling to amber countries to see friends and family was acceptable.

But hours later, the prime minister insisted that such trips were off limits, and later hardened his position by saying that trips to amber lands should only take place in “extreme conditions.”

Meanwhile, Health Minister Lord Bethell claimed that vacations anywhere abroad were ‘dangerous’, calling into question even tourism to green-listed destinations.
