Michelle further added, "It drives me mad. People call him my toyboy beau. He's nearly 35, for God's sake. He turned to me the other day and said, 'Surely I'm not still your toyboy, am I?' I laugh about it now, but it is annoying. And I hate that word cougar. I can't stand it. I find it so demeaning. A cougar is a predator going around looking for young flesh. I'm certainly not like that."
Collins continued, " "But then, women are judged far more harshly than men. And, funnily enough, often by other women. If people think I look old enough to be his mum, then let them! There's nothing I can do about it. It's one of the downsides, I suppose, of being in the public eye. No-one mentions an older man and a younger woman, do they? Nobody goes on about Rod Stewart's wife Penny being nearly 30 years younger than him!"
