Lynne's Ab Fab meeting with Joanna Lumley

Lynne McGranger was yesterday thrilled to meet British legend Joanna Lumley - and, as something of an icon herself, she appeared to need little introduction.

Lynne's Ab Fab meeting with Joanna Lumley

As a household name both here and in her native Australia, Home and Away's Lynne McGranger is used to being recognised by fans and admirers wherever she goes - but yesterday held a particularly welcome surprise for the star when she was able to count a British icon among that number.

Appearing on ITV1's This Morning to chat to hosts Philip Schofield and Ruth Langsford about all things Home and Away, Lynne was thrilled to run into acting great and Absolutely Fabulous star Joanna Lumley backstage - and, as something of a legend herself, she appeared to need little introduction as the two swapped stories.

Reflecting on their meeting, Lynne praised Joanna as 'beautiful and gracious', later naming her in our Twitter takeover as one of the names opposite which she'd most like to appear on screen.
