“On your mark, get dressed, and go, with television’s batty besties!” Patsy & Edina are back again, this time with an Absolutely FabulousOlympic Special“! Brilliant – how did I not see this coming? The 2012 Summer Olympic Games are taking place in London starting on July 27, however the air date for this special has not been announced.

In the preview below, Saffie warns her mother Edina, “Well you better hurry up because it starts this week,” to which which she responds, “What?” LOL. “The Olympics!” says Saffie. A confused Patsy then asks, “Where!?” LOL.

Of course the Games are taking place right in their own back yard! In the special, the two ladies actually end up racing in London’s new Olympic Stadium making them the first to actually run on the track because the episode was shot while it was still under construction. At one part during the preview, Edina holds the Olympic torch while Patsy uses it to light her cigarette.

Watch the preview and behind the scenes look below. Can’t wait to watch this one!
