Jennifer Saunders has scrapped plans for an 'Absolutely Fabulous' film because she doesn't want to ruin the show's legacy
Jennifer Saunders insists the proposed 'Absolutely Fabulous' movie will never happen.
The comic actress worries the show's legacy would be "ruined" if a spin-off movie was produced, despite revealing two years ago - when the sit-com was revived for a series of 20th anniversary specials - she was working on a script for a feature film.
She said: "The film will never happen. 'Ab Fab' is in such a nice place now.
There's such a danger we could ruin it."
Jennifer loved working on the show - in which she played hard-partying PR agent Edina Monsoon opposite Joanna Lumley as magazine editor pal Patsy Stone - and admits filming often had to be halted when she and her co-stars, which also included June Whitfield and Julia Sawalha, got the giggles.
She told Britain's Glamour magazine: "Laughter stopped filming all the time. Joanna as an Old Patsy was one of the funniest things I've ever seen.
"It took us two days to film two minutes of that episode because we just peed and peed and peed with laughter."
