The fire took place on Saturday, and about 10 firefighters tackled it. Collins has taken to social media to talk about it, posting a video of the damage titled “The remains of the day…” The short video showed taped-up windows and the extensively charred interior of the apartment.

In a later post, she thanked family and friends for their support and, accompanying a picture of herself and her daughter Tara, said “a walk in the park to clear the smoke away with my lovely daughter.”

She hailed her husband Percy as a hero, saying he had tackled the fire before the London Fire Brigade showed up. The actress, whose life story is being adapted for TV, went on to thank all the emergency services for their assistance, including the “ambulance crew who took care of our smoke inhalation and comforted me.”
