Ab Fab Returns!
Sweetie! Darling! Such good news! Confirming their long awaited return to the small screen, our favourite TV fashion pairing ever, Patsy Stone and Edina Monsoon, AKA Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders, were seen filming brand new episodes of Absolutely Fabulous in London last week.
Following a seven year hiatus, during which the award-winning series’ star and creator, Jennifer Saunders, successfully battled breast cancer, the much-loved comedy will return for a three part Christmas special, set to air on the BBC in December, to celebrate the show’s 20-year anniversary.
“Like a good bottle of champagne we hope that we have got better with time without losing any of our sparkle” spilled Jennifer, who plays Public Relations guru Edina. “We are so happy to be working for an audience that has grown just a tiny bit older like us, but is still willing to let us fall over on TV in the name of PR.”
And according to film crew insiders, die-hard Absolutely Fabulous fans will not be disappointed with the newest antics of the raucous, fashion-addicted duo. Spotted on London’s shopping hot-spot Bond Street laden down with designer bags, chain-smoking magazine editor Patsy, and terminal fashion victim Eddy had passers by in hysterics as they filmed scenes which saw Jennifer pressed to the window of the Stella McCartney boutique after being refused entry to the store, while her blonde, uber-beehived co-star smugly shoved her newly acquired McCartney purchases in her face.
With original cast members Jane Horrocks as dim-witted PA, Bubble, June Whitfield as Eddy’s mother and Julia Sawahla as Eddy’s long suffering daughter Saffy all returning to reprise their roles, we simply cannot wait to see what the all new Ab Fab has in store – get the Bolly on ice sweetie!
