In this week's issue archetype MILF Joan Collins (b. 1933) explains "how to be a hit with younger men", while one reader retells their dramatic horror plane crash story. 

Although already an established actor in 1981, Collins became most famous for her role as the scheming Alexis in the US soap Dynasty which started airing in the US on January 12, 1981. Collins' character, however, did not appear until the first episode of Season 2, appropriately entitled Enter Alexis, first broadcast in November '81 in the US. The programme started running in the UK in May 1982, and the second season with Collins appearing, from 1st January 1983.

The Titbits magazine/periodical was published in Great Britain from 1881 - 1984. In reporting its closure, the Financial Times described Titbits as 'the 103-year-old progenitor of Britain's popular press'.
