Jennifer Saunders' brilliant comic creations have brought joy to millions for three decades. From Comic Strip to Comic Relief, from Bolly-swilling Edina in Absolutely Fabulous to Donna, as played by Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia, her characters are household names.

But it's Jennifer herself who has a place in all our hearts.
