Jennifer Saunders has confirmed she is going to make 'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie'.

After the long-awaited return of the BBC One comedy - in which she stars as flamboyant PR guru Eddy Monsoon - pulled in nine million viewers for its Christmas special, co-creator Jennifer has revealed she plans to jet off to the French Riviera to shoot a feature-length 'Ab Fab' film.

She told New York magazine: "I'm definitely going to do it. I'm aiming to shoot this in a beautiful part of the Riviera. I fancy the South of France in the spring."

Jennifer has previously admitted she only committed to making more episodes of the comedy because her co-star Joanna Lumley - who plays Patsy Stone - had already told an interviewer she would be.

She said: "It was mainly because Joanna announced it that we did it. She said, 'Darling, I told them in New York that you're going to do a few more.' "

'Ab Fab' is set to return to screens on New Year's Day (01.01.12), with another on-off special - which will focus on the London 2012 Olympic Games - set to follow next year.
