Jennifer Saunders has admitted she wrote the Ab Fab film for a bet.

The comedy star confessed that Dawn French bet her £10,000 if she hadn’t penned the big screen version of the much-loved TV show by the end of the year – which spurred her on.

Jennifer spilled the beans on Jonathan Ross’ show, and also revealed that Pitch Perfect’s Rebel Wilson would be in the film.

She said: “Did I tell you that I’d had a bet with Dawn that I would have to pay her £10,000 if I didn’t produce [the film] by the end of the year?

“We had a live radio show at the end of [last] year so I produced a first draft by [then]! I literally vomited it out. On New Year’s Eve it came out!”

Jennifer went on: “I need [a bet] or a deadline or just sheer panic. I’ve got all the ideas, you think of everything in your head and then you pick up a pen… or go to your computer and it just goes ‘Urgh can’t be bothered, I think it’s funny but I can’t be bothered.’ And then you go, ‘Candy Crush is calling!’”

It was also revealed that some of the film – thought to be called Edina And Patsy after Jennifer and Joanna Lumley’s characters – would be set on the French Riviera, although further plot details aren’t known.

The show originally ran for three series between 1992 to 1996, and was revived for two more seasons in 2001. It later returned for three one-hour specials to mark the show’s 20th anniversary – which were broadcast on Christmas Day 2011, New Year’s Day 2012 and July 2012.
