Moss set for Ab Fab role

Kate Moss is set to star in 'Absolutely Fabulous'.

The 38-year-old supermodel will appear alongside designer friend Stella McCartney and athletes Linford Christie and Colin Jackson in a one-off special of the BBC One comedy, which documents the exploits of champagne-swilling fashionistas Eddy Monsoon and Patsy Stone.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Kate was really excited to get involved with the show. She's a real fan and always quotes it with her mates.

"She sees the parallels between her life and Patsy and Eddy's, and she finds it really funny.

"When she got the script, she squealed with delight. She thinks it's brilliant, and she likes having a giggle at her own expense."

As well as being able to relate to Eddy and Patsy – played by Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley respectively - Moss' friends also nickname her nine-year-old daughter, Lila, "Saffy" after Eddy's studious, long-suffering offspring.

Like Eddy and Patsy, Moss - who is married to rocker Jamie Hince - is famed for her rock 'n' roll lifestyle is often pictured on wild nights out.

The episode will air on March 23 in aid of Sport Relief on March 23.
