DYNASTY actress Joan Collins has been left with a broken wrist after an over-eager fan enthusiastically shook her hand at a book signing.

The 71-year-old British star was left in "agony" after the encounter with an over-zealous fan as she signed copies of JOAN'S WAY.

Collins explains, "It was the final date of my book tour. This enormous man came over to me and I went to shake my hand.

"Before I knew it he was squeezing it really tight - and I was in agony.

"The bandage isn't exactly glamorous but I'm hoping to turn it into a style statement."
