Joan Rivers mistaken for illegal immigrant | Orange UK
Four UK border guards swooped on loudmouth comedian Joan Rivers as she disembarked from a fishing boat in Kent.
The star was filming for her US chat show when she was mistaken for an illegal immigrant trying to enter Britain.
Ms Rivers had been on a fishing trip off Faversham, when the party was questioned by the UK Border Agency.
The agency had received a tip-off regarding a suspicious group of people on two fishing trawlers, reports The Mirror.
Border agency staff went to the site – a notorious drop-off point for illegal immigrants – but instead found the star with her film crew.
They quizzed Ms Rivers, daughter Melissa and the crew for several minutes until they realised who she was.
