Despite the fact she hasn’t quite got the plot in place, Jennifer has already been thinking about who should be in the movie.

Speaking to The Telegraph, she states: “I haven’t got the storyline completely sorted out yet, but I want to cast everyone who has ever been in the show in it."

Jennifer went on to hint that the show's main stars have all signed up for the project.

“I guess if your name begins with 'J’, you’re in,” she adds. “Joanna [Lumley], Jennifer, Jane [Horrocks], June [Whitfield], Julia [Sawalha]. We are all J’s.”

‘Ab Fab’ first hit TV screens in 1992, and since then, 40 episodes of the show have been made.

Over the years, there were plenty of celebrity cameos from the likes of Elton John, Kate Moss and Emma Bunton.

Sadly, one person who won’t be around to star in the movie is Dora Bryan, who died at the age of 91 just days ago.

Dora starred in ‘Ab Fab’ twice, appearing on the show in 1996 and 2001.

Christopher Malcolm, the actor who played Saffy’s dad, also sadly died earlier this year, at the age of 67.
