Ab Fab movie out next year!
Sweetie Darlings - they're back! The first official photo from the Absolutely Fabulous film has just been released.

The image shows Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders sipping Bolly as their hard-drinking, badly behaved characters Patsy and Edina.

The actresses are reprising the roles they made famous in the BBC comedy series which ran for almost two decades.

They are believed to be shooting scenes in both the UK and the south of France for seven weeks.

Lumley and Saunders will be joined once again by Julia Sawalha as Edina's boring daughter Saffy, Jane Horrocks as ditzy PA Bubble and June Whitfield as interfering Mother.

In the film Patsy and Edina are still sipping Champagne, shopping and generally living it up in London when they are blamed for an incident at a fashion party and become embroiled in a media furore.

They flee to the French Riviera where they hope to live safely in the lap of luxury.

Saunders, who wrote the script, said: "I am thrilled and excited to finally start filming. We are all on the Sanatogen and hoping for the best."

:: Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie is due in cinemas in 2016.
