The first time I met the lovely and admirable Joanna Lumley was at Abbey Road Studios in London in 2003.

My girlfriend and I were walking pass the studios and by coincident we went right into the filming of an episode of Absolutely Fabulous. You could say the name of this BBC series also describes my feelings of seeing Miss Lumley!

Without disturbing too much we managed to catch Miss Lumley’s attention and she came to us for a small chat and giving us her autographs, most respected woman in our eyes as she took a break of filming just to fulfill our wishes.

In September 2011, Joanna's autobiography Absolutely was published by Orion Books. For more info, click here.
