Dawn French recently shocked viewers when she lost more than seven stone after vowing to change her lifestyle.

In celebration of her 60th birthday, celebrity photographer Trevor Leighton shared a stunning portrait of Dawn.

Dawn’s fans and celebrity pals have been pouring in their well-wishes for the star and complimenting her new look.

Nigela Lawson wrote” You gorgeous. Happy Birthday”. While a fan simply wrote: “Stunning”.

The nation’s favourite comedian also floored us all after she appeared on The One Show on Monday looking almost unrecognisable.

The Vicar of Dibley star dropped by the BBC studios to chat about her new book Me. You. A Diary, but viewers couldn’t believe it after she casually revealed she was turning 60 this week.

Dressed in all black, the star looked a vision of sophistication with her hair loosely curled and sporting natural makeup.

When presenter Matt Baker hinted Dawn was about to have a big birthday, she revealed: ‘Yep… on Wednesday, I am turning sixty!’, which was met by a huge applause from the audience.

And we’re not surprised, just LOOK how incredible she looks…

The star previously confessed that it was actually a cancer scare that provoked her to change her habits. In her 2014 one-woman show, she revealed to the audience that she’d lost the weight in order to have a hysterectomy with keyhole surgery.

‘No magic wand, just tiny, joyless low-cal eating and lots more walking for weeks and weeks,’ she told the Thirty Million Minutes crowd.

‘It was grim. I lost seven-and-a-half stone. I could have the keyhole surgery. Great. That’s all it was, practical.’

Go Dawn!
