In the run-up to the new episodes, Jennifer Saunders made an appearance in full Eddie get-up this week, turning on the Christmas lights during Stella McCartneyâs festive shindig at her London store. During her speech she made cheeky references to the absent âPatsyâ and Stellaâs dadâ¦ âOh Paul, hello darling, I haven’t seen you since a cupboard in Hamburg, have I?â? she quipped.
You might be wondering what relation Jennifer has to Stella. Well sweetie darlingâ¦ it has been announced that McCartney is just one of the stars making a guest appearance on one of the upcoming shows. Speaking about her role she said: âItâs not exactly my idea of fun, but itâs Ab Fab, and how can you say no to Ab Fab, Iâm sure Iâll be terrifying, but, you know.â?
Other guest-stars unable to refuse such a cracking telly opportunity are Emma âBaby Spiceâ Bunton, who previously appeared in an episode back in 2003 and Dame Kelly Holmes, set to appear in an Olympic-themed episode next year.
