Comedian Joan Rivers, 79, went to the U.K. to record her latest reality TV show. During her recording, she was stopped and questioned by border guards on suspicion of being an illegal immigrant.

Rivers had been invited by her friend to record her show on the nearby 6,900-acre Lees Court Estate.

While enjoying a weekend fishing trip with her daughter Melissa and her crew, four U.K. border guards stopped her as she disembarked from a fishing boat in Kent.

The border patrol agency had received a tip regarding a suspicious group of people on two fishing boats. Border agents went to the site. The site is known as a drop-off point for illegal immigrants, but instead, they found the star with her recording crew.

The agents questioned everyone on the boat including Rivers and her daughter Melissa, until they realized who they were.

Rivers did not lose her sense of humor as she said: "Even though we were innocent I am so sorry they didn't arrest us. I love Englishmen and they were very cute!"
