Monday at 10.30pm: Returning series! Twenty years on, Eddy and Patsy prove that although they may be older, they are still none the wiser – but definitely Absolutely Fabulous.


About the show

Edina (Jennifer Saunders) is a sixties teenager who never grew up. She and her sex-mad friend Patsy (Joanna Lumley) are still into drink, drugs and partying, while her stuffy student daughter Saffron (Julia Sawalha) swots and keeps house.

Other hilarious characters include Edina's scatty secretary Bubble (Jane Horrocks), Mother (June Whitfield), and Patsy's editor Magda (Kathy Burke).

For writing and starring in Absolutely Fabulous, Jennifer Saunders received a Writers Guild Award, a Women in Film & TV Special Award and the Institute of Public Relations Special Award. Joanna Lumley won a BAFTA and two British Comedy Awards and Julia Sawalha won an RTS award.
