Dawn French Looks Unrecognisable After Seven Stone Weight Loss, But What Was The Reason Behind Her Diet?

01 (Custom)

59-year-old English actress, writer, and comedian, Dawn French, completely shocked the media and all of her fans after a recent photo was taken where she almost looks unrecognisable.  The actress, best known from the comedy sketch French and Saunders and the sitcom The Vicar of Dibley, has been on a recent diet, obviously.

She has been well known for her size, but she also shocked her fans with her impressive weight loss last week. The actress shared an image of her new, slimline shape via Twitter last Friday. Wearing a fluted grandad shirt from collaboration with Helen Teague for online retailer Sixteen47, the brunette looked stunning!


This is the result of her diet, after losing an amazing seven stone. French posed bravely in front of the camera, knowing how good she looked.

And although she captioned her picture with ‘check out this LOVELY top’, Twitter fans were checking out her new slim figure. Facially, her jawline appeared more defined and its overall shape appeared more oval and less rounded. Moreover, her waistline seemed much smaller as well. She also wore a pair of fitted, black trousers and a pair of silver shoes, which were absolutely amazing!

Her fans were quick to praise the star for dropping her weight.

On her 30 Million Minutes tour, French explained that her new slimmer look was more to do with health than image. Doctors told her that she had to lose weight in order to have key hole surgery.

She explained:

“When I was due to have my hysterectomy, the doc told me that if I could lose some weight before the op, they would be able to do it via keyhole and I would recover in three weeks or so.”

Although it appears that French had to lose weight for her health, she managed to look fabulous as well!
