Last month, it was confirmed the show's main stars - Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis and Kim Cattrall - had all agreed to reunite for a film.

She said: "I really wanted it to happen a few years ago and it was a bitter pill to swallow that it didn't. But now it's happening, it's fantastic."
