Dame Joan Collins, 88, jets into Spain with husband Percy Gibson, 56

Dame Joan Collins jetted into Mallorca on Tuesday and looked typically glamorous as she left the airport in Palma.

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

Spain is currently on the UK's amber list of countries and travel there for holidays is discouraged. 

It is not known why she has travelled to the Spanish island but she did work on a TV project in Madrid last year. 

Under her pink blazer Joan had on a low-cut black top and completed the look with dark trousers, chunky white sandals and of course a face mask.

She wore huge sunglasses on her face and appeared to have been sent some flowers on arrival as a member of staff carried a bouquet into their waiting car.     

While travel to amber list country Spain is currently discouraged, the screen legend previously spent time in the Spanish capital to film scenes for the medieval series Glow and Darkness, in which she played Queen Adelaide of Savoy.

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

If you do travel to an amber list country, you will need to quarantine for a period of 10 days at home on your return to the UK and take a pre-departure test, plus a PCR test on day two and day eight. 

Alternatively, you can pay for an additional Test to Release on day five to end self-isolation early. 

The government may spot check you to see if you're isolating when you return home and you could face up to a £10,000 fine if you don't quarantine.  

Holidaymakers visiting amber list countries also risk invalidating their travel insurance amid confusion over government advice, experts have warned.

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

It means families could be hit with bills of thousands of pounds if they suffer illness or an accident while abroad. 

The risk also applies to the United States, Italy and most of Greece.

The validity of policies is governed by travel advice from the Foreign Office and not the 'traffic light system' introduced a week ago, said Malcolm Tarling of the Association of British Insurers. 

Despite Spain welcoming UK tourists the Foreign Office warns against 'all but essential travel' to the country, apart from to the Canaries. 

International travel appears to be picking up across Europe, with Airbnb bookings across the continent only four per cent below 2019 levels, according to holiday market monitors AirDNA.
