Absolutely F#@king Fabulous!

Miss Prescott has almost recovered from her lie-down over news that Absolutely Fabulous is to return later this year in a three-part special to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

Yes, Eddie and Patsy will soon be swilling Bolly on our screens once again. (Cheers to that!) Given that Jennifer Saunders can do no wrong, we can only assume that it will be every bit as effervescent as in its previous incarnation. Clearly the fashion will be every bit as fabulous, if the pic above is anything to go by.

“It’s great that we are able to celebrate our 20th birthday with all the original cast. Like a good bottle of champagne we hope that we have got better with time without losing any of our sparkle,” Saunders said.

“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.”

The specials will include “a few surprising guests,” according the the BBC’s executive producer of comedy, Jon Plowman.  One plotline is said to involve Eddie attempting to change the career of “a very big fish indeed.”

Miss Prescott can only hope, pray and speculate wildly, that that turns out to be one très grand poisson, M. Christian Lacroix, longtime favourite designer of Eddie (and Miss Prescott). After all, he does have form on the show. Now sans fashion house of his own, perhaps she will try and recast him as a confectionary giant, thus altering her catchcry only ever so slightly: “Lacroix sweeties! Lacroix!”

Or perhaps Kate Moss will cameo with her good pal John Galliano, the two setting up a vintage stall on Portobello Road to flog the sartorial excesses of their former lives before retiring from public view to a Buddhist retreat? (Too soon for that one?)

Will Bubble embrace minimalism? Will Saffy get laser eye surgery? Will Patsy actually eat? Oh, Miss Prescott is getting dizzy again at the possibilities … Bolly, anyone?
