Joan Collins Five Husbands, Hollywood star Joan Collins is to marry her boyfriend Percy Gibson, her spokesman has announced.
The 68-year-old actress and author will wed 36-year-old theatre company manager Percy Gibson in London in February.
Peruvian-born Gibson proposed to the actress in May while the couple were in New York and will be her fifth husband.
They met when Collins was starring in the play Love Letters, which was touring the US.
But love did not blossom until Gibson helped her edit her latest novel, Star Quality.
Collins described falling in love with Gibson as “like being struck by a thunderbolt”.
Spokesman Stella Wilson said: “They are to marry in London in February but they have not yet finalised a venue or an exact date.
“They are both very happy and are very in love with each other.”
Collins recently said Mr Gibson was “more in tune with me than anybody I’ve ever met”.
“I don’t know how many years I have left, but I’ve always believed in living for the moment,” she said when she made the relationship public.
“I don’t have an agenda for what life’s going to be like in ten years’ time.
“Percy is such a special human being. I feel more myself with Percy Gibson than I ever have with anyone.”
Gibson is the same age as Collins’ son, artist Sacha Newley.
Mr Newley recently said Mr Gibson is “polite, gracious and well-mannered” – but that he found the fact that they are the same age “kinda weird”.
“I’ve always prepared for the extraordinary, and she never disappoints,” he said.
Collins was previously with antique dealer Robin Hurlstone, but they never married despite being together for 13 years.
She first got married in 1952, to Maxwell Reed, but they divorced five years later.
