Ev­ery pic­ture tells a story

Ed­ina Mon­soon and Patsy Stone (Jen­nifer Saun­ders and Joanna Lum­ley, left) first cracked open the Bolly in the early 1990s, in an episode that saw a hun­gover Eddy ca­jol­ing celebri­ties into at­tend­ing her fash­ion show, while also try­ing to con­vince her strait-laced daugh­ter Saffy of her tee­to­tal am­bi­tions. It con­tin­ued in a sim­i­lar vein for five se­ries and eight specials. Iron­i­cally, see­ing as PR Eddy is al­ways grov­el­ling for stars’ at­ten­tion, the show was crammed with lu­mi­nar­ies: El­ton John and He­lena Bon­ham Carter ap­peared, while the 2016 film ver­sion flirted with the idea of mur­der­ing Kate Moss.
