Joanna & Jennifer: Absolutely Champers



Joanna & Jennifer: Absolutely Champers


Sunday 16 September at 8.30pm Channel 017

Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders’ onscreen counterparts - Absolutely Fabulous’ Patsy Stone and Edina Monsoon - were rarely seen without a glass of champagne in their hand. And, off camera, these long-time comedy collaborators and dear friends love nothing more than getting together to share a glass of something chilled and bubbly. Now, the duo are reuniting for a trip that would make their alter egos green with envy. Absolutely Champers follows the two comic legends as they head across the channel to explore the beautiful Champagne region of North Eastern France to learn all about how their favourite tipple is made.

Touring this picturesque province, Joanna and Jennifer visit boutique, family-run vineyards and join seasonal workers as they get stuck in with this year’s grape harvest - as well as learning the processes involved in taking Champagne from grape to glass. As they take in the sights and sips of France we’ll be privy to their intimate and hilarious conversations, listening in as the friends share anecdotes and never-before-heard stories from their lives. Cheers sweetie!
