Dawn French, the actress and comedian, has stunned fans with her new slimmer look.

She took to twitter to show off her figure after a strict diet. Looking into the camera with her hands on her hips she looks superb after her 7 stone weight loss.

In the picture she’s wearing a dress from her online fashion range for retailer Sixteen47.

In the picture she jokes “For all who are askin,frock is @sixteen47ltd, hair is @environmenthair. Teeth are own.#oneshow

Dawn used to have a much fuller figure and the weight loss has come across positively with her fans.

Dawn has spoken previously about the weight loss being down to health more than image.

Doctors advised her it was a necessary thing to do so she could have key-hole surgery.

“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,” she said on her 30 Million Minutes tour.
