Joan Collins tries to recreate THAT Oscars selfie...but misses the mark

Legendary actress Joan Collins has recreated that Oscars selfie on the red carpet last night.

The iconic screen star was attending The Prince's Trust & Samsung Celebrate Success Awards in London alongside a host of celebrities, including Sir Ben Kingsley, Dominic West, Jeremy Irons, Vernon Kay, Pixie Lott and X Factor winner Sam Bailey.

And much like the selfie Bradley Cooper and Ellen DeGeneres shared with millions around the world at the Academy Awards, Collins knows a good opportunity when she sees one.

The celebrities were grinning from ear to ear as they posed for the shot, although she managed to cut out more than a few famous faces in her Twitter image.

The famous 'Oscars selfie' has been recreated multiple times in recent weeks and even The Simpsons got in on the act.

The image shows the original selfie in Simpson's form, but shows Bradley Cooper keeping Homer out of the photo. Bart's spiky hair peeks up in background, barely making it into the shot.

The official account for Homer Simpson tweeted the pic with a request to "break Twitter again", following the success of Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres' ceremony selfie.

The tweet has received over 15,000 retweets to date - some way to go to beat the chat show host's record.

DeGeneres' selfie became the most retweeted tweet of all time - stealing Barack Obama's crown for his re-election tweet featuring a picture of the First Couple hugging.

Ellen's tweet was retweeted over 2.5m times, beating Obama's record by over 1.5m and setting a new record for the microblogging website.
