LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Joan Collins has called herself “lucky” to be married to her fifth and current husband Percy Gibson.

The 90-year-old Collins and Gibson, 58, have been married since 2002. The actress recently told The Mirror, “It is fifth time lucky.”

She continued, “I’ve been feeling that for years. He’s a wonderful, kind, truly good man.”

“He’s my – what’s the thing he always says? – my accomplice, yes, and my best friend. Plus he’s extremely handsome – and he just gets better and better,” she asserted.

How did Joan Collins meet Percy Gibson?

‘The Bitch’ star’s path first crossed with her producer husband in 2000.

Soon they began going out for dinner dates. But it was the tragedy of 9/11 that reportedly forced them to tie the knot with each other.

Gibson could have become one of the victims of the terrorist attack but a plan change saved him.

Joan Collins says she and ‘Percy became really good friends first’

Collins shared that she now knows a Queen-like treatment does not work in marriage. “A relationship is about two people both being there to help and support each other,” she told the publication.

The columnist said, “Every morning before he goes for a run he brings me a coffee in bed while I read all the papers,” before disclosing the secret to their happy married life.

“Percy and I became really good friends first. So we had this connection. We really knew each other. And separate ­bathrooms are key! Although we are very lucky. I know that’s not something everyone can have,” Collins explained.

She also stated, “He has his office area and I have mine. I’ll spend time in mine writing or phoning my friends. And he’ll be working, looking after our three properties.”

“Then we’ll do something together. Like any couple, we have our ups and downs. We do occasionally argue – it’s normally when we’re working together,” Collins added.

Before Gibson, ‘The Bravados’ actress was married to Maxwell Reed from 1952 to 1956, then to Anthony Newley from 1963 to 1971.

She is also a mother to three children — Tara Newley, Katyana Kennedy Kass, and Alexander Newley.
