Friends & lovers

Although she remained single, Joan confessed in a 2000 interview that she was lonely.  Once, her very close friend Kenneth Williams proposed.  'He said we would make the most wonderful couple. We'd give fabulous parties. We'd be the talk of the town, and he'd give me a child if I wanted one, but wouldn't sleep with me after that'.  However, she turned him down as she said she found the idea far too exhausting.
