The shortlist for the funniest fiction prize of the year, the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize, is announced today, Wednesday 12 April. Six titles are in contention for the top spot. The 2017 shortlist was chosen, with the aid of a glass or two of Bollinger La Grande Année, at the world famous family run house of Champagne Bollinger in Ay, France.
The star-studded Absolutely Fabulous World Premiere took place this Wednesday evening in London. The screening was followed by an after party at Liberty London, that saw the department store transformed into a decadent hangout for all the celebrity sweeties in attendance and had all the glitz and glamour you would expect, with everyone from Kylie to Joan Collins enjoying the flowing Bollinger.
