Jennifer Saunders has said she has no more plans for hit TV series Ab Fab.

The show’s star and creator brought Edina and Patsy back for a spin-off film earlier this year.

But Jennifer told the Mail on Sunday’s Event magazine it was time to call it a day.

“I’m not doing anything more with Ab Fab. That. Is. It,” she said.

“I can’t see the point of doing anything else with (Ab Fab). It just takes so long. There’s lots of other stuff I’d like to do. Plus, I’d like to spend time with my grandchildren.”

Jennifer, who starred in Ab Fab with Joanna Lumley, also warned that social media is damaging for young women, adding: “I hate the way it makes girls think they should look.

“That Kim Kardashian look, it’s so automaton. Girls spend longer and longer in the bloody bathroom, looking in the mirror, taking selfies.

“Girls are now getting ill because all they spend their lives doing is finding the perfect selfie.”
