Dawn French looks unrecognisable with glasses and pigtails after getting Covid

DAWN French looked almost unrecognisable with pigtails and glasses after testing positive for Covid last week.

The Vicar Of Dibley actress, who is known for her signature brunette bob, overhauled her look during the coronavirus lockdowns when she revealed her new pixie cut and natural colour.


The comedian, 64, has gone one step further and transformed her look again with a new hairdo.

She shared a photo of the top half of her face as she enjoyed Spring walk at the weekend.

Opting for a more relaxed hair look, Dawn tied her tresses into two pigtail bunches and posed in the middle of a field surrounded by flowers.

It comes after the TV star shared a snap of her positive lateral flow test last week.

The star was inundated with get well soon messages. Fellow comedian Matt Lucas said: "Wishing you a speedy recovery."

Earlier in year, Dawn revealed the reason why she cut off her trademark bob and let her hair go grey.

Dawn told Good Housekeeping magazine that the change came about when she lost enthusiasm to die her own hair at home.

The actress, who is the cover of the April edition of the magazine, said she then opted to "let her natural grey" come through.

"The real trigger came during the lockdowns when I was dying my hair myself, and I just couldn’t be bothered to keep doing it," she said.

"I let my natural grey come through," Dawn continued, adding: "I also cut some of it myself – to my hairdresser's alarm!"

The star said she did occasionally struggle to style her latest look, after years of sporting her signature brunette bob on The Vicar of Dibley.

"The plan is to grow it again like my old hairstyle," Dawn concluded, admitting she was curious what the bob would look like in "strong grey".

It comes shortly after Dawn joked she’s turning into the late ghosthunter Derek Acorah after embracing her natural grey hair.

Dawn recently ditched her brown bob for short cropped look – and fans are loving the fact she's embracing her natural colour.

She told her fans:  "Going lighter bit by bit to happily welcome the grey… with an undercut surprise! Hello there woman in her 60s…."

Meanwhile, the comedian also recently confirmed that hit series French and Saunders would not return to screens, despite Jennifer twisting her arm.

Speaking in a YouTube interview with Sarah O’Connell, the Walk The Line star said: “We both have the same tattoo, which we got on the very last night of doing our double act.

“We were on tour in Auckland in New Zealand, and we knew we wouldn’t be touring our double act again. I mean, you know, here I am saying that and that was lots of years ago.

“I’m done with that. Done with the double act part of it. Not done with her. There’s lots of things I’d love to do with her.

“But doing sketches on telly, I think we’ve had our moment with it . . . though she’s trying to persuade me to do some more.”
