Say it ain’t so!

After five seasons, several special episodes and a movie that raked in over £30 million, it seems the party is finally over for Eddie and Patsy as Jennifer Saunders confirms that the duo won’t be coming back for more.

Speaking to The Daily Mail, the comedian said: “I’m not doing anything more with Ab Fab. That’s it. That. Is. It. I can’t see the point of doing anything else with it, really. It just takes so long.

“There’s lots of other stuff I’d like to do. Plus I’d like to spend time with my grandchildren. So, if I did Ab Fab as well that would just stop me doing anything new, or thinking of any other ideas or having a different job or whatever.”

Jennifer was also asked about the potential for a musical venture, to which she replied: “What? Ha! If someone suggested Ab Fab: The Musical? We’d be so old! This is like taking geriatrics out now.”

But the party doesn’t have to end just yet – GT are hosting a special screening of Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support, and you could be there.

We’re going to be joined by cast members from the film, drag queens and, most importantly, a whole host of Ab Fab fans! Jodie Harsh will jump on the decks after the screening for an exclusive set as you enjoy the rest of your night.
