The cast of hit sitcom 'Absolutely Fabulous' are reuniting to take a look back at the show in a new documentary.

Jennifer Saunders and Dame Joanna Lumley starred in the show about a pair of boozy fashionistas which debuted in 1992 and ran for five seasons and now they are getting the old gang back together for a deep dive into the past sharing anecdotes and behind-the-scenes secrets in a new film for UKTV channel Gold.

Jennifer - who wrote and starred in the series as PR guru Edina Monsoon - said of the documentary: "I loved making 'Ab Fab', but I can’t remember a great deal, so much of this retrospective is a revelation to me.”

Joanna - who played fashion magazine editor Patsy Stone - 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 said: "'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 ... "
