She’s covered the original TV theme ‘This Wheel’s On Fire.’

Despite the fact that no British sitcom has ever been made into a decent movie, Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley’s Absolutely Fabulous is hitting the big screen next month whether we like it or not.

There’s also an ill-advised soundtrack album to go with it, which combines the good (Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg) with the bad (Jason Derulo). The centrepiece? Kylie Minogue’s update of the show’s theme song, ‘This Wheel’s On Fire.’

Originally written by Bob Dylan and Rick Danko in 1968, the version that featured on the sitcom back in the ‘90s was a cover by Julie Driscoll and Saunders’ husband Adrian Edmondson.

Kylie’s version is definitely not the car crash it could have been, but swerves worryingly close to the oompah trend that’s emerged recently.
