Collins said in the documentary that one a date with Reed, he told her that he needed to take a bath and left her with a rum and coke and some books to read.
The 81-year-old said that the next thing she knew, she was out flat on the sofa in that living room and he was raping her and what he had given her was a drug in her drink.
