Dawn French caused a bit of a frenzy on Twitter yesterday as fans reacted to a picture of the comedy legend looking incredibly trim.

The writer and actress was modelling a top from Sixteen47, the clothing range she created with Helen Teague, but it was her slimmed down body that received the most love from her followers.

The 59-year-old has lost around seven and a half stones since 2014 when she decided to overhaul her diet in preparation for a hysterectomy operation.

Dawn commented on her amazing weight loss while on tour in 2016. 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.

'Otherwise it would be big open surgery, and three months to recover. So, I set about dropping a few stone.'

She also told fans how she achieved it and the sacrifice it took to lose the weight. She said: 'No magic wand, just tiny, joyless low-cal eating and lots more walking for weeks and weeks.

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