The comic is enjoying married life


It looks like Dawn French has been enjoying life since marrying charity boss Mark Bignell in a secret ceremony two months ago.

The comedienne, 55 – who’s regained some of the weight she’s lost in recent years – was snapped in Sydney at the weekend, where she’s appearing as a judge on Australia’s Got Talent.

She’d covered up in a baggy black smock and black trousers and rested her feet in a pair of fluffy blue slippers.

Dawn stars alongside Geri Halliwell on the talent show Down Under and has jokingly referred to the slim Spice Girl as ‘tiny little Bambi‘.

Mum-of-one Dawn weighed 19st before splitting from ex-husband Lenny Henry after 25 years of marriage in 2010.

She shed an impressive 7st in a year by cutting out chocolate and carbohydrates but has now put 3st back on, saying she feels more ‘in control’.

Dawn, who adores bread, pasta and potatoes, is believed to have taken Mark, 49, to Oz with her and they’ve turned the two-month trip into a belated honeymoon.
