8:00pm – Wednesday, February 8 on ABC1
Twenty years ago the world was introduced to Edina, Patsy, Saffron, Bubble and Mother. It has never been quite the same again. As outrageous, scandalous, raucous and fashion-addicted as always, the ladies are back on screen reprising their award-winning roles in three specials – and they’re going to be fabulous, darling.
Eddy worked in PR, and PR’d things. Into every new fad and fashion imaginable, she and best friend Patsy were often found to be at the bottom of a champagne glass, or more likely, bottle – and not much has changed.
Long-suffering Saffy was hardworking and the grownup of the house, all but ignored by her mother and hated by Patsy.
Now, returning to the small screen to mark this special anniversary, we see a life changing experience for one character… which invariably affects all the others.
Twenty years on the ladies are a tiny bit older, none the wiser – but definitely still Absolutely Fabulous.
In the first special, one of them has been away for some time, so there is lots of catching up to do. She returns with a new best friend, who is both a blessing and a threat to the household. It forces them closer than ever. It may even involve one of them owning up to her real age.
