Comedienne Jennifer Saunders has confirmed reports she is developing an “Absolutely Fabulous” movie.

In a new British TV interview with Jonathan Ross, Saunders revealed she has bowed to pressure from co-star Joanna Lumley to come up with a script for a film.

In the cult TV comedy series, which ran from 1992 to 2005 and returned for three anniversary episodes in 2012, Saunders and Lumley played boozy socialites Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone.

Saunders says, “I have to do it now because I’ve threatened to a lot, and then she (Lumley) kept announcing it and saying, ‘Yes, she’s going to do it,’ and then (writing partner) Dawn French on our radio show at Christmas said, ‘I bet £100,000 that you don’t write it,’ so now I have to write it, otherwise I have to pay her £100,000.”
