'Didn't recognise her at first'

Dawn French has wowed viewers of BBC One's The One Show with her youthful appearance during a recent segment of the show.

Comedienne Dawn, who has fought a well-documented battle with her weight over the years, shocked audience members by revealing that she was about to turn 60, leading many to praise her for looking 'so great'.

'Can you believe it! How did that happen?' Dawn exclaimed as she confirmed that she was about to celebrate the milestone birthday, adding that she planned to mark the occasion by 'sitting down on Saturday with my kids my old man my bro and my best friends... and we'll drink too much probably!'

Many took to Twitter to share their surprise at Dawn's revelation, with some even declaring that they didn't recognise the former Vicar of Dibley star.

'Looking fabulous!! You look so happy!' one exclaimed, followed by another who tweeted: 'Holy Hell woman you are looking magnificent'.

'@BBCTheOneShow last night dawn french was on she looks so great,' a third wrote. 'Didn't recognise her atfirst she always looks great but wow 😍 @Dawn_French.'

'Dawn French looking gorgeous on the One Show. 60! #gogirl👌🏼' another applauded.


In the past, Dawn has credited her glowing complexion to a long dedication to a favourite high street brand - Nivea.

In July 2016, she told her social media followers that she was a big fan of the company's Q10 moisturiser, which she used regularly as part of her skincare regime.

'No one is paying me to say this, but in answer to all "skin" enquiries, please don't spend tons, this is it for me,' she advised at the time.

In previous interviews, Dawn has confessed that she can't bring herself to buy expensive beauty products, explaining: 'I have my mother in my ear saying "It's exactly the same as Nivea".'
