Ab­so­lutely Fab­u­lous: Olympics

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - FOOD & DRINK -

The com­ing of the Olympics is as good an ex­cuse as any for a one-off Ab Fab spe­cial, and it’s a joy to see out­ra­geous Ed­ina Mon­soon and Patsy Stone (Jen­nifer Saun­ders and Joanna Lum­ley, above) back on our screens. Eddy has rented her house to Michael Dou­glas (or thinks she has) for the Olympics, but has some­how not no­ticed that the Games are about to start, so she, Patsy, Saffy, Mother and Bub­bles are still liv­ing there. Panic and con­fu­sion reign, es­pe­cially when un­ex­pected – and very un­wel­come – vis­i­tors arrive… As usual with Ab Fab, this spe­cial is a mix of the bril­liantly funny and the baf­flingly un­funny – but the bril­liance def­i­nitely wins out. Mon­day, 9.30pm, BBC1.
