Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley film a travelogue

...with plenty of Bolly

Ab Fab stars Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders are to be reunited - and there will be plenty of Bolly involved.


The pair have shot a travelogue in France, which included a visit to the Bollinger vineyards to learn how their characters’ favourite champagne is made.


'It was a blast, even though it was work,' Lumley told the Mirror's 3am column. 'And we had great fun catching up.'

The finished programme is expected to air on Boxing Day... and it won't be Saunders' only appearance on TV this festive season as she and Dawn French are returning to their sketch show, with a  Christmas special to mark their 30th anniversary.

However, Saunders is not expected to write any more adventures for Patsy and Eddy, following last year's big-screen outing of Absolutely Fabulous.
