They once gripped the nation with their rivalry, back stabbing and betrayals but Dynasty Divas Joan Collins and Stephanie Beacham have now reunited for first time since they starred in the hit show to front the latest Snickers advertisement.

The actresses, who have replaced A-Team star Mr T as the new faces of the chocolate bar, pay homage to their Dynasty characters Alexis Carrington and Sable Colby in the advert by bringing back the iconic 80's style.

Miss Collins, 78, and Miss Beacham, 64, join forces for the new campaign which hopes to promote the chocolate to the female population by encouraging them to satisfy their 'inner diva'.

According to Collins it was her idea to approach Miss Beacham, who appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2010, to star alongside her in the new campaign.

She told the Daily Mail: "When they said, "We need a similar lady to come on and be another diva", I said, "Well, there's only one choice - Stephanie!" I mean, we had so much fun on Dynasty."

The new advert, which runs for a month, will be broadcast first at 11.20am on Channel 4 on 22 January.
