Joanna Lumley has revealed her desire of having the Spice Girls reform for Absolutely Fabulous The Movie.

The 65-year-old actress, who plays hardcore Patsy, said that Jennifer Saunders is talking about doing an 'Ab Fab' film.

"Jennifer is a great magnet," the Mirror quoted her as saying.

"She phones people up and they all just say 'any time'. It was lovely to have Emma in the Christmas special and it would be great to have all of The Spice Girls in the movie.

"It definitely won't be this year but it might be next. The reaction to the Ab Fab specials was extraordinary. It's very lovely to know there is still such a demand for it," she added.
