Saunders excited about Ab Fab film

Jennifer Saunders says she can't wait to walk down the red carpet as her Absolutely Fabulous alter-ego.

The comedian and actress is working on a film of the hit BBC sitcom.

And she said that now that she had made her plans public, there was no going back.

"If I do it for no other reason, it'll be so Joanna (Lumley) and I - Patsy and Eddy - can walk up that red carpet. Wouldn't that be a dream?", Jennifer said.

The actress said there would be plenty of laughs in the film.

"Eddy and Patsy are looking for what they imagine glamorous life should be.

"They're constantly searching for that perfect place to sit or that perfect pair of sunglasses. It's Shangri-La and it just might be round the next corner.

"In the meantime, they decide to take Saffy's (Julia Sawalha) daughter off her - she calls her Jane, I call her Lola - but then they lose her," she said.
