Joanna Lumley has admitted that she stole most of the props from the set of the 'Absolutely Fabulous' movie

Joanna Lumley stole most of the set of 'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie'.

The 70-year-old actress - who plays Patsy Stone in the big-screen adaptation of the beloved TV series - admitted she took many of the film's props home with her.

Her co-star Jennifer Saunders (Edina Monsoon), said: "You took most of the set."

And Joanna admitted: "I can't think of anything that I didn't take."

Imitating her friend, Jennifer, 57, quipped: "Are you going to use those flowers, I'll just put them in my car. Are you going to want that lovely fruit? And the bowl? And that chair? Right, I'll just put them in my car."

Jennifer also admitted that she panicked before filming began as she worried they had gotten in over their heads by trying to adapt the TV series for the big screen.

She explained: "I found the first day of filming quite terrifying because I woke up in the middle of the night and I thought, 'Oh no we're actually making a film, it's gone too far, it was just a joke'."

To celebrate its partnership with 'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie', Diet Coke also asked the pair about their style icons and they both admitted Kate Moss, who is one of the many stars to feature in the film, is at the top of their list.

Jennifer said: "I think Kate Moss is most people's style icon because she always looks like she hasn't had to try. She can be in Glastonbury or on the cover of Vogue and look effortlessly wonderful."

Joanna added: "I wanted my face to look like hers and my body."
