DAWN FRENCH ON TURNING 60 AND HER CELEBRITY CRUSHES!
The brilliantly funny Dawn French joined Andrea, Nadia, Janet and Gloria on the show today to discuss her new book - Me. You. A Diary. - and turning 60.
Following her much discussed seven stone weight loss, Gloria asked Dawn if she missed what she described as ‘the old Dawn’ and whether she felt she was a different person ‘now she had shed so much weight’
Dawn said, ‘I did it quite a long time ago, I go up a bit down a bit, I don’t feel any different at all. I always liked the old Dawn. Who knows, I may go there again, who knows? It depends on how many doughnuts I eat.’’
On a day we were discussing breast cancer awareness, Dawn also spoke about supporting friend and comedy partner Jennifer Saunders through her cancer journey. She said that Jennifer’s keywords were ‘vigilance but not worry and get regular checks’.
Dawn also revealed that she has had crushes on many stars including George Clooney and Steve McQueen and spoke about her new side fringe which is as a result of her returning to her character in the drama Delicious in which she co-stars with Emilia Fox.
