Ooh, we wondered about this! After Jennifer Saunders, in character as Edina Monsoon, was papped outside the Stella McCartney store earlier this year, then this week turned on Stella’s Christmas lights, we wondered whether there might be some sort of something happening between the two parties. And it turns out there is!
Stella McCartney revealed to The Telegraph that she’s going to have a cameo role in one of the new episodes of Saunders’ sitcom Absolutely Fabulous, to air this Christmas (we are BESIDE ourselves about that, obviously). Ms. McCartney said ‘It's not exactly my idea of fun, but it's Ab Fab , and how can you say no to Ab Fab? I'm sure I'll be terrifying, but, you know.’
Stella joins the likes of Lulu, Elton John, Debbie Harry, Jean Paul Gaultier and Erin O’ Connor who have all made cameos in the show’s past series. Already confirmed for this season are Emma Bunton (another returnee), Dame Kelly Holmes and The Killing’s Sofie Gråbøl, brilliantly. But who else tops your list of possible cameo-ees? For Grazia Daily, pretty much nothing would beat Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington, apart perhaps from Meryl Streep in character as Miranda Priestly. Now THAT would be good. But what about you?
