In a new attempt to raise the profile of her campaign to award former members of the Gurkha regiment increased rights to live in Britain, Joanna Lumley is to star in a one episode spin off of "Absolutely Fabulous".

Lumley will star with Jennifer Saunders in the episode which will be called "Absolutely Gurkha" and aired ont he BBC later in the year.

The episode will see Patsy and Eddy magically transported back to World War II and serving with the Gurkha regiment, with inevitably hilarious consequences.

Lumley is convinced that the show will make sure that her campaign will receive the attention it deserves and may well set out a plan for a number of follow up shows trying to raise awareness of campaigns and causes that the ladies are interested in.

Other likely episodes rumoured to have been discussed already are;

"Absolutely Pregnant and Facing a Firing Squad in Thailand"

"Absolutely likely to lose the next General Election"

"Absolutely suffering with Gonorrhoea"


"Absolutely a midget who can't find work"
