Absolutely Fabulous star Julia Sawalha has taken a fancy to Bath. The actress, 44, best known for playing daughter Saffy Monsoon in the hit comedy series, is renovating an apartment within a Grade I-listed townhouse in Somerset Place, a landmark crescent in the city.

Sawalha’s new pad is one of 20 apartments within eight properties. It is the first time in 200 years that an entire Bath crescent has been restored and offered for sale. Prices for the remaining homes start from £1.65 million.

The star’s passions include yoga, growing vegetables and Georgian buildings, and she is a big supporter of a fundraising scheme to refurnish and decorate Bath’s No 1 Royal Crescent museum, which reopens to the public on June 21, 2013. Edina and Patsy would be proud, sweetie darling.
