Rocker cringed when he was recognized by a prostitute in Amsterdam, Holland - she was such a huge fan, she offered him her services for free. The former star was in the city to perform a concert with the band when he decided to take a stroll through the infamous red light district during a night out.

Collins was taken aback when one hooker realized who he was and asked him to join her for free sex - but he swiftly turned down the offer.

He says, "We were on tour with Genesis. Just after a meal we were walking down the red light district back to the hotel and a very attractive woman rushed out. She said, 'Phil, come in, come in, for you no charge!' I thought 'Of all the times to get recognised and you can't do anything about it.' All the perks but none of the advantages!"
