CRACK open the Bolly sweetie darlings, Jennifer Saunders has confirmed she is going to make Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.

The comedy was one of the biggest successes on the BBC this Christmas, pulling in nine million viewers with another episode to come on New Year’s Day.

Asked about the prospect of a movie, Saunders, 53, who plays Eddy alongside co-star Joanna Lumley, 65, said: “I’m definitely going to do it.

II’m aiming to shoot this in a beautiful part of the Riviera. I fancy the south of France in the spring.”

She will hope the film, likely to be released in 2013, will rival the success of The Inbetweeners Movie.

It was 2011’s biggest grossing British movie, taking £45million at the box office and selling more than a million DVDs, despite a budget of just £3.5million.

There will be another Ab Fab in 2012, with a storyline set around the Olympics.
