Dawn French's new look is no miracle

Dawn French was rumoured to have a new man in her life but the comedienne has revealed the real reason behind her 4 and a half stone weight loss.

Dawn, who’s mum to adopted daughter Billie, 20 this year, shed the pounds because she started worrying about her health.

‘I think when you’re over 50, you kind of have to pay attention to your health a bit, I want to be there for my kid, I have quite a lot of exciting adventures that I want to do,’ says Dawn, 53.

‘I just ballooned up a bit more than I wanted to.’

Dawn – who split from husband Lenny Henry, 52, in April 2010 – was surprised by the public’s enthusiastic reaction to her new figure and insists slimming down isn’t a huge deal.

‘You can always address it,’ she told ITV1’s This Morning.

‘You just have to eat less and walk more and that’s what I’m doing.’
