Dawn French has revealed the secrets behind her four stone weight loss, since filming the second series of Roger and Val Have Just Got In. Talking to the presenters on Bbc Breakfast yesterday (February 7, 2012), French said that she lost the weight because she had been doing "loads more walking and loads less eating." She went on to say that she walks her dog every day, before she starts work on her second novel. "I don't ban anything. I don't punish myself, I just have much less," the comedian told viewers.
Sporting a sleek asymmetric haircut, Dawn was on the show to promote the second series of Roger and Val have Just Got In which debuts on Bb2 tonight at 10pm. The show, which was filmed last summer, also stars Alfred Molina and each show plays out in real time, focusing on the half hour after the couple return from their separate days at work. The first series landed Dawn French with a BAFTA nomination for Best Female Performance in a Comedy Role.
French, who is perhaps best known for her comedy sketch show partnership with Jennifer Saunders, has starred in a number of successful comedy show, such as The Vicar of Dibley, Psychoville and Murder Most Horrid. She was previously married to fellow comedian Lenny Henry, though they divorced in 2010 after more than 15 years of marriage.
