“Hello possums!” Just to let you know that everyone’s favourite lilac rinsed dame, Edna Everage, will be returning to BBC One with an all-new one-off special later this year.
Let’s hope it’s nearer Christmas.
As everyone probably already knows Dame Edna Everage is a character played by Australian comedian Barry Humphries. This self-proclaimed housewife/would be megastar will invite members of the live studio audience onto her yacht for a one off special.
Wearing her diamanté glasses and size eleven high-heels, the hilariously funny seventy eight year old will return to the BBC for one night only. With famous faces we all know and with music we love to listen to, we can look forward to her hilarious sense of wicked humour along with a “few surprises”.
One of Dame Edna’s favourite quotes which aptly describe her sense of humour is – “Never be afraid to laugh at yourself. After all, you could be missing out on the joke of the century.”
BBC commissioning editor Rachel Ashdown added: “Over the past 50 years Dame Edna has got to grips with the world’s biggest stars and I am looking forward to seeing her welcome the current generation of celebrities to her sofa.”
We can’t wait to see the one-off special this year!
