Absolutely Fabulous, darling. No really, Absolutely Fabulous, the movie. It's happening. CHAMPAGNE FOR EVERYONE!

Well that's what star of the show Jennifer Saunders is saying. Thing is, she reckons it just has to happen now that her partner in crime Dawn French bet her £100,000 that it wouldn't come to fruition. Quite a steep bet to make. And here's me thinking I'm Chamillionaire for winning myself forty quid in a seven person game of Texas Hold 'Em.

This was shared by Saunders on the Jonathan Ross show this weekend: "Yes, well I have to do it now because I've threatened to a lot." She continued: "Joanna Lumley kept announcing it and saying, 'Yes she's going to do it,' and then Dawn French on our radio show at Christmas said, 'I bet £100,000 that you don't write it,' so now I have to write it, otherwise I have to pay her £100,000."

But what of all the pressure associated with taking something from the small to the big screen? Doesn't always take like a duck to water.

"It's like the second album syndrome. Once you've had a bit of success, the last thing you want to do is go and make a flop. So the biggest fear in me is that it won't be good enough.
"I'm really nervous about it."

We're not; it'll be magnificent.
