ACTRESS Joan Collins, 87, has been spotted in Madrid filming the new medieval series Glow and Darkness.

Alongside Denise Richards, the Dame will star as Adelaide of Maurienne, a 12th century Queen of France and the second wife of King Louis VI.

Her and husband Percy Gibson, 55, were stopped by fans outside their Madrid hotel, despite Collins being barely recognisable beneath a face mask, hat and sunglasses.

Glow and Darkness will detail the life of Saint Francis of Assisi and feature other recognisable characters including Eleanor of Aquitaine, played by Jane Seymour.

Filming is scheduled to take place in Italy, France, Morocco and Egypt as well as Spain.
