Saunders praises down-to-earth Moss for not caring about looks

Jennifer Saunders says Kate Moss is the "least precious" guest star 'Absolutely Fabulous' has ever had.

The 38-year-old supermodel will appear alongside comediennes Jennifer and Joanna Lumley in a one-off special of the BBC One show in aid of Sport Relief tomorrow night and Jennifer revealed Kate threw herself into her cameo and wasn't worried about her appearance.

Jennifer said: "We've got Kate Moss, Stella McCartney and David Gandy. We've done French and Saunders stuff with Kate before and she's been wonderful so it was great to work with her again. She's really good, she's really professional and she looks amazing.

"She comes in, lets the hair and make-up people do whatever they want, she isn't precious about her appearance at all but I suppose when you look like that you don't need to. You can put anything on her face and she'll look good.

"She is honestly probably the least precious person we've had on. I suppose because she doesn't have all those hang ups about her looks like other people. She just threw herself into it and was wonderful."

Jennifer also admitted she wasn't worried about getting a bad reception to 'Absolutely Fabulous' when it was revived at Christmas, because it is popular with the public.

She said: "I think because 'Absolutely Fabulous' is so well loved, unless it was really dreadful people weren't going to slate it so we weren't too nervous."
