OMG OMG OMG!!! Santa dropped off something he forgot!
We're going to get a BRAND NEW season of Ab Fab!! Yes!!!
We've been dying over the new episodes to hit the net, especially since it's been six years since they last left us. And this just rings in 2012 in one of the best ways possible!
The viewing figures prove it's as popular as ever and there's a real appetite for more episodes. Obviously it's down to Jennifer to write more and getting all the actors together takes some organising.
But the current understanding is there will be another Christmas special for the end of 2012 and then more episodes the following year.
Wow. A movie AND a return to television. THAT is absolutely fabulous!
If U need a reminder on just how fab it is, watch the video above. Ull see!!
