That’s it, darlings. No more Ab Fab. And that’s no more TV, and certainly not a sequel to the recently released big screen take on the hapless fashionistas Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone. Speaking to the Daily Mail, Jennifer Saunders said: “I’m not doing anything more with Ab Fab. That. Is. It.” Sounds pretty unequivocal. “I can’t see the point of doing anything else with [Ab Fab],” she added. “It just takes so long. There’s lots of other stuff I’d like to do.

It’s always been rumoured – with titillating hints here and there – but now it’s official: Patsy Stone is transgender. Joanna Lumley has confirmed that her character from BBC sitcom ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ was once a man. Patsy’s past as a man is something that Jennifer Saunders’ character Eddy Monsoon has referred to in the show in the past, notably the time in Morocco in 1971 when Patsy was said to have had a sex change operation.

The diminutive Janette Krankie could be riding into a rather substantial storm over her role in the new ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ movie. 68-year-old Krankie, real name Janette Tough, best known for being Wee Jimmy Krankie on TV through the 80s, plays a male Japanese fashion designer called Huki Muki in the forthcoming big screen reboot of the BBC comedy series.
