It’s taken many years for the hit BBC hit-com Absolutely Fabulous to find its way to the big screen. However, as the world of fashion and celebrity has become one long edition of Jennifer Saunders’ comedy the time is certainly ripe.
Part of the draw of the series, particularly once a measure of success had been achieved, was the conveyor belt of celebrity cameos. And as this is a sit-com movie you can expect these to be part of the big screen experience.
Rather than save these pleasures for the cinema BBC films have decided to make them part of the marketing – so here we go, here’s a gallery of all the famous faces taking part.
