Gary....you have made my day mate.

Queers of the world....look out....the bitch troll from hell is back...YAY!!!

All I can say is it had better have Bubble and Patsy...otherwise forget it.

Keep us posted Gary will ya...coz I am sure we will be getting it only 2 or 3 days after it airs in the UK, like last time round.

Cheers

Mirror Ball

Actually you must be referring to "Mirror Ball", which will feature the same cast as "AbFab". This time around Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley will be playing two aging Disco Divas who now work in London's West End theatre world. Julia Sawalha, June Whitefield and Jane Horrocks are all scheduled to return as well as regular cast members. I can't remember the rest of the character descriptions but this was all written up in the New York Times back in August.

There was an article on the BBC website yesterday about the return of Ab Fab. No return of Bubbles, but Jane Horrocks will be appearing as Yitta Hilberstam. I had better start getting on the right side of friends living in the UK and get them to video the series and mail it to me. If it is anything like Ab Fab 1 we will get it in the USA a year after it airs in the UK.
