The 70-year-old actress insists that women had become “sensitive flowers” who were offended by “everything”.

Meanwhile, we could be seeing Joanna back on the big screen as Patsy Stone after Jennifer Saunders revealed that a sequel to this year’s ‘Ab Fab’ movie is on the cards.

Jennifer said: “We’re doing it again, certainly. If people go and watch it, yes.”

Joanna added: “It is always fun to go back to those ridiculous people.”
