Lynne Franks is the world’s best known PR guru. She is the inspiration for AbFab’s Edina Monsoon, having famously once told its creator and client Jennifer Saunders: “I’m chanting as we speak.”

Saunders says she based the uber fabulous Edina on Franks, and although this PR powerhouse was non too pleased in how she was portrayed in the series at the beginning, and in fact refused a guest part on one episode, she now loves it, and totally embraces her inner AbFab.
