Kate Moss set for Absolutey Fabulous role - but will she speak?

Kate Moss will star in Absolutey Fabulous.

The 41-year-old supermodel is set to appear as herself in the movie version of the award winning BBC comedy series that saw characters Eddie Monsoon - played by the show's writer Jennifer Saunders - and Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) live in a boozy world of fashion and PR.

Jennifer, 57, revealed: "I can confirm Kate does have a part. It's not yet decided whether she'll have a speaking part but she'll definitely be in it.

Kate is friends with the "sweetie darling" actress and appeared in the series in 2012, so Jennifer thinks it's a "no brainer" that she's joined the cast.

She told The Mirror: "She's a big fan of the show and we're pals, so aside from the fact she's the definitive model, it was a no-brainer.

There'll also be a bit of Spice with Emma Bunton and Lulu. I've only just got the green light so I'm tweaking the script and I'm trying not to over-egg it.

"We'll be recording at London Fashion Week and weave it into the finished product"

Meanwhile, sources revealed Jennifer wants to bag another big name for the movie and sign Victoria Beckham.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Jennifer is desperate to keep things under wraps but landing Posh will be a big coup.”
