Ab Fab's Olympic torch relay

Published

Patsy may have lit the Olympic torch with a cigarette in the Ab Fab Olympics special, but that didn't stop Locog giving the dynamic duo the honour of carrying the real thing across London.

The fabulous but fictitious Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone, played by Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley, carried the torch through Kensington and Chelsea, or rather, along the King's Road, their natural home.

Dressed in the regulation London 2012 torch bearer uniforms of white suits and trainers, Eddie and Patsy were still marvellously in character, blowing kisses to the huge crowds that lined the street.

The Ab Fab Olympics special received a bit of a mauling by critics when it aired this week, so it's good to see the pair back in their prime.

The torch has been carried past London landmarks by a whole host of celebrities today, from David Walliams to rugby player Lawrence Dallaglio, and will end its journey at Buckingham Palace tonight at 7:30pm, cheered on by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
