Dawn French has spoken candidly on Australian TV of the racial abuse she endured during her 25-year marriage to ex-husband Lenny Henry.
The actress and comedian, who lives in Cornwall, recalled a series of shocking attacks they suffered during their time together and called them 'cowardly acts'.
Excrement on your door, we had that. We had words scratched into every panel of every car- very offensive, derogatory and racist terminology.
That took me more by surprise really because it is everywhere. Only when you are married to a black man do you think, hang on, that guy just said that and thought it was okay to say.
