Naomi's Absolutely Fabulous Reprimand

Joanna Lumley´s character in Absolutely Fabulous, fashion editor Patsy Stone, is hardly famous for her good behaviour, but she apparently had a competitor on set in the form of Naomi Campbell in the early days of the show.

Speaking at a lunch in New York, where the promotional trail for the newly realeased big-screen adaptation of the popular Nineties series has moved onto having kicked off in London, Lumley revealed that Campbell had to be pulled in line by a floor manager during a guest appearance when she arrived late.

"You're working with a lot of very professional actresses. They all pitched up on time, and they know their lines. Darling, you'll do that tomorrow, or you're out," Lumley recalled the manager saying, reports Page Six. According to Lumley, Campbell took heed of the telling off and the following day she showed up at nine o'clock on the dot.

Campbell was one of many model cameos in the original series, many of whom returned for the film. Fellow models Jourdan Dunn, Suki Waterhouse, Lily Cole, Lara Stone, and super Kate Moss all featured in Patsy and Eddy's latest outing.
