Joanna Lumley has revealed that she will not return to Jam and Jerusalem when the second series airs next year.

The actress played Delilah Stagg in the BBC Women's Guild comedy, which is written by Jennifer Saunders.

However, she refused to rule out reprising her role as Patsy in a one-off special of Saunders' Absolutely Fabulous.

She told The Stage: “Delilah is not in the second series. I have stepped back from it, not for any reason other than it was gorgeous and going along fine and maybe she will come another time.”

Speaking about the possibility of another Absolutely Fabulous, she said: “Because we shot right forward into the future in the last [show], you could almost pick the characters up at any time in their lives.

"I suspect they have not gone away completely, maybe there will be a special somewhere. It’s a known thing that maybe one day they will lurch out of the boxes again. They are fun to be.”
