Bring on the Bolly!

Comedy goddess Jennifer Saunders and posho Joanna Lumley are to be reunited for the return of Absolutely Fabulous. The show, which elegantly skewered the world of PR in the 90's, will begin filming in the summer.

Lumley told hello magazine, ‘In late August I start filming on three episodes of Absolutely Fabulous, which we are all ecstatic about. Miss Saunders has been so busy writing Uptown Downstairs Abbey for Comic Relief and also Spice Girls: The Musical, I don't think she's started [the script]. Jen wrote to me and said, 'Let's talk through it. What do you think?'. And I said, 'Bring it on'. Because we're all still here. Mother's still alive, the wonderful June Whitfield. Julia Sawalha [and] Jane Horrocks [are] all still alive and available ... and I think we just have to do it.'

A BBC insider confirmed, ‘We're putting the finishing touches to the deal to bring it back.’
