Kylie Minogue is singing the theme tune for Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie!

The singer is covering the classic theme song for the TV comedy’s first film and it’s the same theme that was heard on every episode of the BBC sitcom.

Speaking about covering Bob Dylan’s ‘This Wheel’s on Fire’ she said: “As a huge fan of the Ab Fab series and both Jennifer and Joanna, I’m over the moon to be singing the theme song.”

The Sun reports that Jennifer Saunders wanted to keep Kylie’s involvement top-secret and the soundtrack also includes Paloma Faith, Jason Derulo and La Roux.

But it doesn’t just stop with singers as Julia Sawalha – aka Eddie’s daughter Saffy – has covered Janis Ian’s ‘At Seventeen’, while Jane Horrocks – Eddie’s assistant Bubble and arch-rival Katy Grin – has done ‘Big Spender’.

The Absolutely Fabulous Movie soundtrack will be released on July 1 – the same day it hits in cinemas in the UK.
