There’s an impressive line-up of celebrity cameos in Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie – and if the first full-length trailer is anything to go by, model Kate Moss fares particularly badly.

Pursued by voracious PR Edina (Jennifer Saunders) – as Patsy (Joann Lumley) “distracts” a horrified-looking Jon Hamm – Moss is toppled from a balcony and ends up drowning in the Thames.

After a social media storm, Patsy and Eddy promptly go on the run – stopping for a cigarette en-route, of course – and end up in the south of France, where “everyone’s a criminal” anyway. Charmed by the high life, the pair hatch a plan to stay on the Riviera forever.

The film, which also see the return Julia Sawalha as Eddy’s long-suffering daughter Saffy, Jane Horrocks as Bubble and June Whitfield as Mother, is the first big-screen outing for the cast of popular BBC sitcom Absolutely Fabulous, which was first broadcast in 1992.

Moss and Hamm aside, other celebrities who feature in the film include Game of Throne star Gwendoline Christie  – glimpsed on the red carpet at the fashion launch shown in the trailer –  model Lily Cole, designer Stella McCartney, Barry Humphries (aka Dame Edna Everage), Graham Norton and singer/Britain’s Got Talent presenter Alesha Dixon.

The trailer also features a cameo from Rebel Wilson as a flight attendant who tasers Patsy on a plane – with suprisingly little effect. "Cheers, you don't get that on British airways," says a pleasantly surprised Lumley, before blithely proceeding down the walkway.

The film, scripted by Saunders and directed by Mandie Fletcher, is released on July 1.

Five very Ab-Fab moments from the trailer 

  • 1. Eddy, on phone: “Hi, Darling – no, I’m working from Nobu this week.” 
  • 2.  Patsy, to Jon Hamm: “Hi Johnny, Don’t you remember me?” Jon Hamm: "Oh, God. I can’t believe you’re so…alive. "
  • 3.  Eddy: “Stella!” Stella McCartney: “You’re not wearing my clothes, are you?”
  • 4. Eddy: “What is this, some kind of late-life lesbo party?” Patsy: “Where are all the men?!”
  • 5. Eddy: “I’ve been trollied on Twitter The woman told me I was a pariah.” Saffy: “Do you know what a pariah is?” Eddy: “Yeah. It’s a fish.”
