The duo, who are the creators and stars of the series, will be joined by fellow cast members Julia Sawalha and Jane Horrocks for the special look-back.

Absolutely Fabulous: Inside Out takes viewers on a trip down memory lane, looking into the behind-the-scenes secrets of how the show was made.

The hosts will meet with costume designers and famous fans while sharing unheard anecdotes, behind-the-scenes secrets and personal reflections.

Jennifer and Joanna will also have a look at the original scripts, and never-before-seen footage, as well as their first ever episode.

And it will pay tribute to the late star June Whitfield, who played Jennifer’s on-screen mother.

For Jennifer and Joanna, it’s a welcome reminder of the success of the show.

Jennifer said: “I loved making Ab Fab, but I can’t remember a great deal, so much of this retrospective is a revelation to me.”

Joanna added: “It was a fabulous wander down memory lane by actresses who only have the faintest grip on reality.

“Really thrilling, and I hope vastly entertaining.

“I loved every second.”

Show commissioner Kirsty Hanson celebrated: “Absolutely Fabulous captured the imagination of a whole generation of viewers and helped break the mould for female-led comedy TV forever.

“Fans of the show are in for a real treat with Jennifer, Joanna, Julia, and Jane reuniting for what promises to be the comedy event of the year.”

The feature-length show will air on UKTV channel Gold later this year.
