"Jennifer is a great magnet," Lumley (Patsy Stone) told the Sunday Mirror. "She phones people up and they all just say, 'Any time'. It was lovely to have Emma in the Christmas special and it would be great to have all of the Spice Girls in the movie.

"It definitely won't be this year but it might be next. The reaction to the Ab Fab specials was extraordinary. It's very lovely to know there is still such a demand for it."

Lumley is also planning a new travel documentary following her previous efforts, Joanna Lumley in the Land of the Northern Lights and Joanna Lumley's Nile.

"I love it so much, it gives me a great chance to see how people in the world live who aren't just rich," she added.
