Watch Ab Fab’s Edina and Patsy crash the British Fashion Awards

Joe Williams November 25, 2015

Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders showed up to the ceremony as their iconic characters.

Fashion concious PR guru Edina and her sidekick Patsy Stone rocked up to the Britain Fashion Awards earlier this week.

The pair took to the stage to present the Brand of The Year Award to fashion icon Stella McCartney – whose apparently still new to the game, according to Eddy.

“I am in my spiritual home. Shout out to all my homies,” Saunders told a cheering crowd.

“The winner has literally come from nowhere. She’s been making bags out of the pubic hair of wheatgrass for years… it’s Stella McCartney!”

The pair stayed in character throughout the ceremony, and were even pictured chugging free champagne at the after party.

The Ab Fab movie has been getting a lot of attention since its announcement earlier in the year.

Saunders added to the excitement around the film by announcing that she hoped to cast nearly 100 drag queens in the film.

The news was revealed after talent scouts began the hunt for ninety-six drag queens and “draggy camp fantastic looking queers” to join the cast.

On top of eight drag queens to perform individually – as well as seventy to be in an audience – the production team are also hoping to cast eighteen celebrity drag lookalikes.

The lookalikes are set to include Cher (obviously), Madonna and Dolly Parton impersonators.

Real life celebrities said to be taking part include One Direction’s Harry Styles – who will be playing the love interest of Lumley’s hard partying character.

Also set to star are Glee’s Chris Colfer, acting legend Joan Collins, Emma Bunton and Kim Kardashian West.

A blurb for the film reads: “Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots.

“But when they are blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi.”

“Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forevermore!”
