Review

Less hysterical than the first in this revival series (I can live without Patsy’s mirthless workmates and an egregiously OTT Bubble), this second serving dishes up some camp froth.

“Sort of singer” Emma Bunton and Lulu guest-star, while staggering on set with a massive wig and smoky French accent is Lindsay Duncan as film star Jeanne Durand. The effect is stunning: think Faye Dunaway essaying Marlene Dietrich. Jeanne wants to sing, Eddy has booked the Albert Hall, but nothing comes out of the blessed chanteuse’s mouth. What to do?

Summary

Edina's client list is getting shorter by the day, and to make matters worse, her daughter despises her. So when she meets a famous French film star whom Saffy hugely admires, she believes the best way to earn back some respect - and increase her income at the same time - is to sign the actress as a client. The only problem is, the woman's talents turn out to be rather questionable. Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley and Julia Sawalha star.
