With the return of Absolutely Fabulous less than a month away, nostalgia for the British sitcom has hit an all-time high. One of the show's fans is none other than Stella McCartney, who invited AbFab's lead actress and creator, Jennifer Saunders, to turn on the Christmas lights for the McCartney shop in Mayfair, London.
Saunders did so while in character as Edina Monsoon, and she was accompanied by Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton. (Fun fact: Saunders appeared in the Spice Girls movie Spice World in a scene where she discussed fashion with Victoria Beckham.)
Even better news? Bunton and McCartney will both appear in the AbFab holiday special. Did we already mention how someone needs to record that and mail it to us?
