Granny

In the first episode, Daphne and two friends are taken to Amsterdam in ‘this lively three-part series’ presented by Barry Humphries‘They were sampling cannabis in Amsterdam. Flames leaped up in their faces but only made them dissolve in giggles. It was shot in the Red Light District and is actually illegal but they enjoyed their trip (overseas).’

There is more in the Guardian, ‘They’re not here for the tulips’.

In Episode 2, Daphne and her two friends went off to try out virtual gaming and had fun ‘killing’ each other. She went to the hairdressers in Episode 3 , only to ask her stylist if she would make her look nice after she’d died – when she was in the coffin.

She threatens to climb out of a coffin next. OAPs on the rampage. There is surely to be another series. It is wonderful to see how gorgeous the senior citizens looked in their youth. Click here for photos of Daphne.

On the set of Ab Fab: The Movie

‘You won’t see me, I was playing a wall-flower,’ but rest assured Daphne was there, in Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.

‘I’m in a scene with June Whitfield when everyone is dancing.’ This is clearly described by Jennifer Saunders as, ‘some kind of late-night lesbo party’ and Daphne’s sitting to left of screen with a fancy glass of champagne in her hand!

‘It’s meant to be the South of France but was shot in a hotel in London.’

They did have fun.
