The dynamic duo, who play boozy best friends Patsy Stone and Edina Monsoon, were joined by a host of brand new famous faces including Krankies star Janette Tough as they shot the star-studded party scenes, no doubt arranged by the master of PR herself, Edina.

 

Joanna went hand-in-hand with Scottish comedienne Janette, who is famed for playing Wee Jimmy Krankie and has previously popped up in the sitcom, as well as making appearances on French And Saunders.
