Dame Sheila revealed in June that she saved a woman from an assault when the attacker recognised her from TV.
The 89-year-old said there was “a bit of a struggle” before the assailant fled.
Writing in her autobiography Old Rage, she added: “I am far from sure that I would have intervened had he been wielding a gun or knife.
