Absolutely Fabulous: Olympics
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.
