Pop the bubbly! Ab Fab's Jennifer Saunders, Emma Bunton, and Stella McCartney.

She's the fashion favorite of many an A-list actress, so it was only a matter of time before Stella McCartney got her big break.

The designer will join the beloved champagne-swilling besties, Edina and Patsy, with a guest-starring role in the recently-revived Ab Fab series, the Telegraph reports.

"It's not exactly my idea of fun, but it's Ab Fab, and how can you say no to Ab Fab?” McCartney said. “I'm sure I'll be terrifying, but, you know."

Her role alongside stars Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley may be under wraps, but the Telegraph reports that “it involves Edina and Patsy taking a trip to the Stella store, and somewhere in the mix, Olympic gold-medal winner Dame Kelly Holmes features, too.”

Somewhere else in the mix? Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton. who will also reportedly make recurring appearances on the show.

Saunders herself was on hand November 29 for McCartney’s London store Christmas lighting, where she joked that she’s not exactly McCartney’s ideal customer.

"Stella has resisted me wearing any of her clothes for many years now,” she said. “There's fatter people than me out there wearing Stella: Nancy Dell'Olio!"

That’s our Eddy.
