I’ve really warmed to Dawn because I love her honesty

Have your say

I’ve always liked Dawn French. There’s just something about her that makes you warm to her.

Perhaps it’s because she’s one of the few stars to ever openly talk about being overweight and her battle to lose the pounds.

Or because when she and Lenny Henry divorced in 2010, she spoke fondly of him, but also struck a chord with other women all over the country.

Or because I think I could happily sit down over a cuppa and a slice of cake and put the world to rights with her.

Whatever it is, I like her and she re-inforced that when she spoke to Good Housekeeping magazine about her relationship with new hubby Mark Bignell, openly talking about how she wasn’t very good at flirting when single. I just love her honesty.
