Kate Moss shot her cameo for the upcoming Absolutely Fabulous film in London on Wednesday. She was photographed filming a scene in the River Thames. The supermodel can be seen drinking champagne whilst smoking a cigarette, wearing an emerald green dress adorned in sequins and taking a dip in the river. Something tells me Kate’s indulging in a familiar party-girl lifestyle for her role in Absolutely Fabulous. Also by her side was French fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier. Her scene shocked many of her fans – some had come to believe that she had nervous breakdown and gone too far. However, Jennifer Saunders did confirm earlier this year that Kate will be making a cameo, she just didn’t give details of her role in the film.

Absolutely Fabulous debuted on BBC One in 1992, following the lives of a heavy drinking PR agent Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders), and magazine editor Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley). The sitcom ran for 39 episodes, and returned for three specials, airing on Christmas day 2011, New years day 2012 and a London Olympics special in July 23rd, 2012.

After a long time contemplating on writing the script for the film, Saunders officially confirmed on BBC’s Breakfast on April 2014 she will finish writing, furthermore she did not want to lose a £100,000 bet to actor Dawn French after she called her out not finishing the script on radio at Christmas.  

The film synopsis reads: “Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots, but when they are blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forevermore!”

Jennifer Saunders confirmed filming had begun in October, unfortunately a release date has yet to be confirmed.
