'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie' hasn't even hit cinemas yet, but already Jennifer Saunders has confirmed her intention to make a sequel.

The Edina Monsoon actress, who penned both the original TV series and its new film adaptation, has revealed she hopes to reprise her role as the boozy PR guru again in the future, alongside Joanna Lumley, who plays her BFF, Patsy Stone.

Speaking to The Sun at the world premiere on Wednesday (29 June), Jennifer said: “We’re doing it again, certainly. I want this again. If people go and watch it, yes.”

Helen Lederer, who plays Patsy's dippy colleague Catriona, also claimed Jennifer had a "responsibility" to carry on, as she had another film's worth of scripts left over. 

“Jennifer realised making the film was so much fun and has created so much work for a lot of people that now it’s almost her responsibility to keep it going," she said. 

“I have a funny feeling there will be [a second film] and who knows what else."

Jennifer seems to have had a change of heart about making a sequel since giving an interview to Look magazine earlier this week, where she said: "I’m not planning a sequel at all, no. This is it!"

However, she did add that it would not be the last we see of Eddy and Patsy. 

The film already looks set to be a huge success at the box office, and early reviews have been largely positive, so we have everything crossed for that second film.
