Despite the photo evidence presented late last year, you might have remained in a state of disbelief about Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie. So here comes the teaser to calm your fears with a little drink. Watch the footage, which riffs on classic Bacardi and Martini ads, right here{ =nofollow}.

Mandie Fletcher is calling the shots on this one, working from Jennifer Saunders’ script, with her Edina and Joanna Lumley's Patsy joined, as you might expect by Julia Sawalha’s Saffy, Jane Horrocks as Bubble and June Whitfield as Mother.

The plot, which follows some of the archetypes for a film based on a British sitcom sees Edina and Patsy shopping, drinking and clubbing their way round London’s top spots until they stumble into a fashionable launch party and are blamed for a major incident. Fleeing the ensuing media storm and attendant paparazzi, they head for the French Riviera without a penny to their names, but start to form a plan to stay there permanently. Sounds about right for them.

A cavalcade of cameos and appearances bolsters the cast for this one, with Cara Delevingne, Gwendoline Christie, Rebel Wilson and even the legendary Celia Imrie on the roster. Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie will stagger on to our screens this summer.
