The 59 year old looked happy as she showed off her incredible weight loss, in a button up dress.

Fans were quick to praise the comedian, with one commenting: “OMG! I love it! You look AWESOME!” and another said: “You look beautiful…..as always.”

In 2014 Dawn weighed 19.5 stone and put herself on the first of several low calorie diets.

She went on walks to help her slim down as she admitted she was only losing weight so she could have a hysterectomy.

Although divorcing from husband Lenny Henry at the time, she insists the weight loss was so she could have key hole surgery.

Whilst on her 30 Million Minutes tour she admitted to the audience: “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.

“Otherwise it would be big open surgery and three months to recover. So I set about dropping a few stone.

“No magic wand, just tiny, joyless low-cal eating and lots more walking for weeks and weeks. It was grim. I lost seven-and-a-half stone. I could have the keyhole surgery. Great. That’s all it was, practical.”

But Dawn is finding it hard to get used to her new slim figure as she always loved her fuller frame.

She told Woman magazine: “I have a great fondness for that other body. I knew it very well and I don’t know this one as well, not yet.

“I was never actually unhappy then so it’s not the case that I was miserable and I’m happy now.”

We hope Dawn learns to love her body as she really does look fabulous!
