Jennifer Saunders was joined by her beautiful daughter, Beattie Edmonson, on The Graham Norton Show on Friday night. The pair opened up about Beattie's new film, Patrick, in which Jennifer makes an appearance. Chatting about watching her daughter star in the film, she said: "I was very nervous for her, you always are for someone you know and you really want them to be good. It turned out she was!" She jokily added: "I went to visit her on set and wheedled my way into a role. I did of course bring my own fat suit."

Speaking about growing up with Jennifer as a famous mum, Beattie, 30, revealed: "I assumed everyone's mum and dad were on TV and would ask other children what shows their parents were in. I remember coming home from school one day and asking my mum if she really was Jennifer Saunders." Beattie also opened up about her dad, Jennifer's husband and comedian Ade Edmondson, and the best piece of advice he has ever given her, revealing: "A boy at school was told off for farting and when I told my dad he became very serious and said, 'Don't let anyone tell you that farting isn't funny!" Abe also spoke about his daughter in an interview with the Evening Standard, revealing his reaction when she revealed she was going to try stand-up comedy. He said: "We were terrified when Beattie first said she was doing comedy and invited us up to a show. We thought, how are we going to react if it's [bad]?"
