'Coronation Street' and 'EastEnders' veteran Michelle Collins claims she once got mistaken for busty 'Baywatch' baby Pamela Anderson
Michelle Collins got mistaken for 'Baywatch' babe Pamela Anderson on a date.
The 52-year-old actress - who is best known for playing Stella Price in 'Coronation Street' and Cindy Beale in 'EastEnders' - says a romantic evening went wrong when her beau thought she was busty blonde Pamela and asked if she still had the iconic red swimsuit worn on the US show.
Michelle explained: "I went for dinner with someone and they said to me, 'Can I just ask one question? Have you still got your swimming costume from Baywatch?' And I was like 'What?' And he said, 'Well, you were in Baywatch weren't you?' And I went, 'No.' "
The mystery man had searched for Michelle on Google and obviously got himself confused.
She added: "He said, 'Well, I Googled you and you were.'
"I told him, 'Well, you shouldn't Google me then, should you!' Don't ever trust Wikipedia."
Meanwhile, the soap legend has also confessed she was something of a teen tearaway in her younger days.
She told Gay Times magazine: "I was very much a punk, and a non-conformist, and always did things to try and ... well, get attention. I think teenagers didn't really have a voice like they do now."
