We didn't quite believe it until today but here's the photographic evidence - Eddy and Patsy are back!
The first official photo from their big screen outing, appropriately titled 'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie' has been released by Fox and BBC films.
And it doesn't disappoint. The duo is photographed aboard a yacht, holding glasses of champagne aloft, on the French Riviera, where they've apparently fled after being "blamed or a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party".
They've arrived there completely penniless and are desperate to stay and live the high life - at any cost.
Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley will be joined by series regulars Jula Swalha as Eddy's bookish daughter Saffy, Jane Horrocks as the squeaky-voiced Bubble and June Whitfield as Eddy's mother.
"I am thrilled and excited to finally start filming," Saunders said. "We are all taking our medication and hoping for the best."
The film is due to release next year.
