Good news, sweetie….
The BBC has confirmed Absolutely Fabulous is to return to the UK later this year with three specials to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary.
Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley, Julia Sawalha, June Whitfield and Jane Horrocks will all return.
The series about PR guru Edina and her sex-mad magazine editor Patsy ran in various seasons from 1992 to 2003 with a special in 2004.
The first epsiode will see them in the middle of a “life-changing experience for one – which affects them all”. In the second show, Edina sets her sights on changing the career of someone described by the BBC as “a very big fish indeed”. In the last episode, Eddy and Patsy play their own part in the 2012 London Olympics. Dear god…..
Saunders said, “Like a good bottle of champagne we hope that we have got better with time without losing any of our sparkle.
“Last week when we started filming in dear old west London, it was as if nothing had changed. It was raining.
“Nevertheless, 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.”
