An Absolutely Fabulous movie has been confirmed!

Joanna Lumley, 69, has confirmed that the movie adaptation of the hit BBC sitcom will begin shooting on October 12.

In an interview on This Morning she said:

“We are all there, the same old gang.

“Lots of people you will have seen in it before, I think we are going down to the south of France to do some of the shooting there.

“It’ll all be shot on location. It is going to be ravishingly funny! Very gorgeous… and completely fabulous!”

She joked that she might have to give her character Patsy’s iconic beehive hair-do a rest while filming…


“I usually use my own hair, and that’s usually for one show a week in front of an audience.

“But when you’re shooting for seven or eight weeks every day, I think I’ll give it a bit of a break.”

Absolutely Fabulous was first broadcast in 1992 with three special 20th anniversary episodes screened in 2011 and 2012.

And we’re so excited to have them back on our screens!
